The Journey Continues: Black History Month at TLU

It’s been a wonderful month on campus as we celebrate Black History Month.

We’ve had special chapel services and speaker events, and it was a thrill to hear Rev. Nontombi Naomi Tutu’s talk, One Body, One Family, One World. The Black Student Union hosted a tasty “S’mores and Solidarity” event, and their upcoming “Blame It on the Boogie” celebration is sure to be lots of fun.

On Wednesday, February 21st, Rev. Arthur Malone II will be speaking at chapel. Rev. Malone is the pastor at New St. James Baptist Church in Seguin and a founding member of the Seguin Community Coalition, which was established in response to the George Floyd murder. That coalition brought the Seguin Police Department, TLU, and local pastors together. If you’re in the area, join us in the Chapel of the Abiding Presence at 10:00 a.m. on the 21st!

On Thursday, February 22nd, Dr. Mario Salas will speak in Tschoepe Hall’s Dunne Conference Center. Dr. Salas—a writer, civil rights leader, and educator—is author of the book, The Alamo: A Cradle of Lies, Slavery, and White Supremacy. All are welcome to attend the talk, which begins at 11:30 a.m.
