Owens Students To Discuss Racial Topics During National Black History Month Forum, Feb. 24

A consortium of Owens Community College students will gather to discuss important issues relevant to today's Black youth as part of a National Black History Month Student Forum on Thursday, February 24.

The forum titled "Young Black America: A Culture in Crisis?" will occur from 4-6 p.m. in the College's Center for Fine and Performing Arts Room 111 on the Toledo-area Campus. Owens is located on Oregon Road, four miles from downtown Toledo. Admission to the event is free and the public is encouraged to attend.

Discussion will focus on topics of race and diversity affecting youth in today's society, including interracial dating, tip drill (the sexual exploitation of black women) and the coaching profession, among other issues.

"Owens Community College is honored to serve as a forum, which will facilitate racial discussions on issues viewed as extremely important to our students and the future of diversity nationwide," said Betty Valentine, Owens Director of Employee Relations and Diversity.

Dr. Imelda Hunt, Owens Adjunct Faculty member who teaches courses within communications and humanities, will serve as the moderator for the open discussion. Among the individuals comprising the panel will be Owens students. For additional information about the event, call (567) 661-7454 or 1-800-GO- OWENS, Ext. 7454.
