Black History Month

By JHUBSU

Black History Month has officially begun! Please join the Office of Multicultural Affairs for the screening of "Gideon's Army" on February 3 at 6:30PM in Charles Commons Salons A & B. Here is the link to reserve your spot as well as your dinner plate: https://adobeformscentral.com/?f=iMVcGY6T1aC63wZg85X2Ng. According to the New York Times, the film details the "legion of idealistic public defenders fighting for equal justice in a land where not everybody can afford a high-priced defense attorney. That army is named after Clarence Earl Gideon, who was arrested in 1961 for stealing soda and a few dollars from a pool hall in Panama City, Fla.?"
