Community Scholars for Black Lives Fellowship Program
An afternoon mixer will be held at the California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks to promote the Community Scholars for Black Lives Fellowship Program that will be taking place this academic year. The students will give a presentation summarizing their research projects and the program's overall goals.
According to the university’s announcement, the Community Scholars for Black Lives Fellowship Program is a small group of Cal Lutheran students working toward a more just society in which African Americans are not forced to bear the brunt of racist structures and systems.
This community is part of the Community Scholars for Black Lives Fellowship Program. A grant from the Amgen Foundation has made it feasible for the program to offer scholarships, mentorship, and opportunities to get involved in the community.
Cal Lutheran's Black Employee Association, University Advancement, and the Office of Sponsored Research and Projects have collaborated with the Office of Talent, Culture, and Diversity to host this event for the campus community.
Black History Month LA Excursion
On the other hand, California Lutheran University will hold a Black History Month LA Excursion at the California African American Museum (CAAM) on Sunday, Feb. 26, at 9:30 a.m.
According to another announcement, students at CAAM are immersed in an atmosphere that recognizes, honors, and celebrates the significant contributions that African Americans have made to the cultural, economic, and political development of the American West.
The "because I am exhibit," curated by Adee Roberson and Azikiwe Mohammed, will be the focal point of the trip's activities. Prints made using a screen, paintings, a video, window vinyl, and various sculptural works are on display in this exhibition.
During the visit, students will be allowed to think deeply about who they are as individuals.
Also, the participants will next make their way to a restaurant that Black people own for lunch and a group discussion.
