Feminist Afrofuturism: Black History Month at PSU aimed to bring together a dynamic group of students, faculty, staff, and community members to create a collaborative art project celebrating black women in American History. I am thrilled to report that we did just that! Throughout February we held weekly crochet workshops and completed a large scale banner of Nina Simone. The banner was unveiled and shared with the campus community at our culminating event at the end of the month. The culminating event featured guest speaker Dr. Aria Halliday who spoke on The Afrofuturisms of Feminism. Her talk nicely complemented the work we completed during the month. The event was a resounding success! The Hage Room was completely full with all 100 seats taken and attendees standing in the back of the room during the scholarly talk.
