The College of St. Scholastica will celebrate Black History Month with an evening of free food, activities and performances beginning at 5 p.m tomorrow (Thursday)in Tower Hall on the St. Scholastica campus.

The event is open to the public; youth and families are encouraged to attend. Over 300 participants are expected. Parking is available in the Mitchell parking lot, and shuttles will offer rides from the campus's lower lots by Chester Creek.

"Black History Month gives us the opportunity to share our compassion for each other as human beings," said Stacey Skan-Allen, St. Scholastica's multicultural coordinator. "Celebrating the month on Valentine's Day is a purposeful way we

can demonstrate that love and compassion for each other. And, because the event is family-oriented, we can share the special day with our loved ones too."
