BLACK HISTORY MONTH

OUR VIEW: More than a Month

More than a century ago, Carter G. Woodson traveled from his home in Washington, D.C. to Chicago, where he celebrated the 50th anniversary of emancipation with thousands of other Black Americans at Chicago Coliseum. The exhibits inside commemorated Black achievements since the abolition of slavery, and what Woodson saw inspired him to highlight and memorialize Black heritage while educating others through developing curriculum, journals and organizations dedicated to Black History.

They are everywhere but nothing can beat the carefully crafted formula of Valentine’s Hallmark movies. Filled with C-list actors, cliche plot lines, and over-the-top romance, what more can you ask for?

My relationship with my grandmother had always been strained. You would think it would make losing her easier, but it actually made it a lot harder.

Unearned Return

If Ball State accepts Theta Chi’s attempt to come back and reestablish a new chapter, Ball State’s administration will be setting a dangerous precedent for Greek Life organizations.
