The University of Wyoming’s Association of Black Student Leaders (ABSL) has organized events throughout the month of February for Black History Month.

The first will be a lunch panel discussion titled, “Daydreaming: An Evolution of Student Activism.” The panel is divided into three parts that explore students’ role in protesting: A dedication of the 50th anniversary of “Freedom Summer” (In the summer of 1964, college students initiated a movement to allow African-Americans the right to vote in Mississippi); students’ role in the “Black Power” movement from a national to local level; and finally contemporary forms of protest for students regarding racial justice.

The lunch panel discussion is February 4, 2014 at 12:15 p.m. in the Wyoming Union West Ballroom.
