Ivy Tech Northeast to host Black History Month celebration

Ivy Tech Community College Northeast will host a Black History Month celebration from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Feb. 27 in the Student Life Center gymnasium on North Campus, 3701 Dean Drive.

Put on by the Office of Diversity Affairs and the Multicultural Affairs Organization, the event is open to the College and community members. Its schedule includes a variety of feature submissions from community members, including

  • Condra Ridley, a local storyteller and community fixture
  • James Williams, a local life coach and mental illness activist
  • Ron Lewis, an adjunct instructor at Ivy Tech Northeast

The event will also include a community resource fair.

“Our goal this year is to continue the dialog about the current state of black America and what is being done locally to address the needs of our community,” says Diana Jackson, assistant director of Diversity Affairs.

Last year’s Black History Month celebration was attended by more than 100 community members.
