Black-Brown Get Down presents: What’s Love Got to Do With It?, Feb. 22 

The Black-Brown Get Down returns Thursday, Feb. 22, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the 707 Hub. Student leaders will facilitate conversations around love, healthy relationships and the complexities of dating within our social and racial realities. Joining in on the discussion is Dr. Aesha Adams-Roberts, EOP writing specialist and relationship expert. This month’s feature flavor will be Jamaican food from a local Black-owned restaurant. 

Students from all racial/ethnic backgrounds are encouraged to participate in the conversation.

These monthly student-led gatherings are designed to build community, cultivate cultural awareness and foster solidarity among students across racial and ethnic boundaries. Each session explores the challenges and joys of being a student of color and the ways we are all connected, in addition to featuring food from local Black- and brown-owned businesses.  

Black-Brown Get Downs are sponsored by the Educational Opportunity Program, the Center for Engagement and Inclusion, and the Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion/Urban Scholars Program. For questions, please contact: Jacki Black, Tamra Keith, Amanda Markwardt or JohnRae’ Stowers.
