The Pine Bluff Branch of the National Association of University Women (NAUW), will celebrate its annual International Day and Black History Program at 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 10.
The event will be held at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) Building and Conference Center, according to a news release.
The public is invited to attend. The international portion of the program will focus on West Africa and participants are asked to dress in West African or African attire. Attendees will be able to sample international dishes after the program.
This year’s theme is “Journey through the Great Migration: Honoring New Black Businesses in Pine Bluff.” It incorporates the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) National Black History Month Theme: “Black Migrations.”
“Both themes explore the migration of people of African descent from the south to new destinations and social realities,” according to the release.
Joyce Bracy Vaughan and Arlene Woody are co-chairwomen.
