AUK Celebrates Black History Month for the Third Consecutive Year

To celebrate Black History Month for the third consecutive year, Dr. Inas Mahfouz, Assistant Professor of English, and the English Department of the American University of Kuwait, organized a week-long event around black female writers. The theme of the week was "Black Women's Writing, Activism, and Archival Research", and it featured lectures, poetry reading, and a screening of the 2011 movie "The Help".

Dr. Angelica DeAngelis, Assistant Professor of Comparative Literature, launched the week with a lecture in which she focused on the earliest play written by a black female writer and explored the dominant themes shared amongst black female writers.

Throughout the activities of the week, students became involved in discussions around feminism and race and were encouraged to relate these themes to current events.

A library corner displaying some of the books written by Black women was available throughout the week. The walls of the B building were also decorated with interesting facts and inspirational quotations by famous African American women.
