A few highlights of the first few weeks of spring semester 2018:

  • Taste of Service, where students enjoyed chocolate treats and learned about nonprofit engagement and service opportunities from the 40+ Twin Cities organizations attending the event.
  • In the Kitchen With Black History Month kicked off the events of the month with some delicious food.
  • A panel conversation with Sharon Louden: Artists as Change-Makers in Community.
  • A bowl-making workshop took place in the Mac Ceramics Studio last weekend. Bowls made during these workshops will be sold in the annual Gary Erickson Empty Bowls fundraiser at the end of March. This year all proceeds will benefit Neighborhood House, a local organization that helps people from diverse communities thrive by providing food and housing support.
  • The Black History Month Committee at Macalester College  invited Dr. Nekima Levy-Pounds to give this year’s Keynote Address entitled “Black Joy Is a Tool Against Oppression.” Dr. Levy-Pounds spoke about the importance of finding and cultivating black joy in the midst of fighting against oppression and fighting for the liberation of black people.
