    Is this event open to the public? Is there an admissions fee?

  2. Lonna Saunders Says:

    Yes, this event is free of charge and the public is invited. Please get the word out to everyone you know. There are 500 seats to fill and it would be a shame if not every seat were filled, don’t you agree? My niece is involved with the campus organization sponsoring this event, Sisterhood. She asked me to help her get a speaker for Black History Month. So, I did. Dick Gregory. Please, please come.

    Wow! Jacqueline Slaby and Mercedes Munn really put so much work into making this year’s Black History Month fun and informative. This one is sure to be a great event so I hope that the turn out is equally good. Great job you two!
