"It's A Different World: College Forum" (906 hits)

On Sunday, February 19, at 6:00 p.m., in the University Church, the United Student Movement will host the "It's A Different World: College Forum."

The program will feature two of the cast members of the popular television sitcom "A Different World," which aired from 1987 to 1993. Jasmine Guy ("Whitley") and Darryl M. Bell ("Ron") will visit the Oakwood campus, to discuss the show's continuing legacy and its current relevance, delivering the message about the importance of college, specifically HBCUs. They will engage in conversation with a live audience, and participate in a panel discussion, which will moderated by a local journalist from the greater Huntsville area.

During the Divine Worship experience on Sabbath, February 18, the special musical guest will be the Alabama A&M University Gospel Choir. The sermon will be delivered by Dr. Carlton P. Byrd, senior pastor.

On Tuesday, February 21, "Expressions of our Colors" will be presented at a jazz/poetry fusion, showcasing the intersection of music and literary works.
