    Presentation shows blacks’ overlooked contributions

    A theatrical presentation sponsored by the African-American Student Affairs will be shown tonight at 7 in the Social Sciences building, Room 100.

    “”Portraits of Courage”” is an examination of overlooked blacks and their contributions to American history.

    Surprised at the absence of black figures in today’s history books, playwright Colin Cox created a theatrical piece to help bring recognition to a few of those who have helped shape the country. In a 65-minute, two-person presentation you will meet Ida B. Wells, Lewis Latimer, Colonel Young, CJ Walker, Bass Reeves, and Fannie Lou Hamer.

    For more information call the African American Student Affairs, 621-3419 or visit the Will and Company Web site,
