The annual Black History Month observance “Some Blues, Some Jazz, and Some Soul Food” adds a Taste of Shabbat this year. On Friday, Feb.16, the Campus Activities Team (CAT) and Hillel will blend the annual program with a Hillel Shabbat dinner.

Students, faculty, staff, and community are invited to come and enjoy delicious food and learn about the relationship between Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel as an example of the shared history of Blacks and Jews in the Civil Rights Movement. You will also be treated with Kimberly Wilson’s one-woman show, “A Journey,” which brings history’s prominent black women to life on stage.

Admission is free. A $5 suggested donation will be accepted at the door to benefit the Brothers and Sisters United (BSU) Book Fund which was created in 1993 to support University students in need of textbooks.

Don’t miss "Some Blues & Jazz, with a Taste of Shabbat & Soul" on Friday, Feb. 16 in the Konover Great Room. it’s free and it’s fun.
