The public is invited to an evening of learning Black history on February 24. Linda Flowers, President of the Carbondale Branch of the NAACP, says last year's inaugural Black History Scholar Bowl, held in person, was enjoyable.
"It was, we were all together in one room, and everyone had an opportunity to learn some history, but to bring the community and the University together."
This year's event, in collaboration with the SIU's Black Affairs Council, will be held virtually. Flowers says people who are not a part of a team are still encouraged to join.
"Or at least come, and be a part of learning and listening with us."
