Murray State College to host events in celebration of February’s African American History Month


Members of the MSC Cultural Events Committee, Pi Society and Responsible Citizenship Committee have joined together to offer public activities in celebration of February’s African American History Month. 

First up is a presentation in Ardmore at the UCSO by author Jennifer Lindsey.  Lindsey is a supervisor for Ardmore City Schools and a sports writer for the Davis News.  Her presentation is free and open to the public, beginning at 6:30 p.m. in Room 151.  The talk will be streamed live to the MSC Tishomingo campus in Room 202 of the Student Services Building, also beginning at 6:30 p.m.

“I am very impressed with what our student organizations have planned for African American History Month this year.  They are hosting events for the public and visiting Langston’s campus to explore its history of higher education in our state.  Broadening our understanding of the world in which we live is a vital component of the higher education process,” said MSC President Joy McDaniel.

On Wednesday, February 27 at 6:30 p.m., the blockbuster film Hidden Figures will be shown free-of-charge at the Indie Theater in downtown Tishomingo.  There will be a short introduction prior to the film and a discussion will follow. 

The public is invited to join members of the campus community at both the February 7 event in Ardmore and Tishomingo at 6:30 p.m. and for the free showing and discussion of Hidden Figures at the Indie Theater in downtown Tishomingo on February 27 at 6:30 p.m.

For questions about public events on February 7 and 27, 2019, contact Dr. Rebecca Jacobs Pollez at
