Students enjoyed live reggae and a savory meal at Wednesday’s Soul Food Buffet, held (in the aftermath of a snowstorm, no less) in the Bush Campus Center as part of Penn College’s Black History Month observance. The dinner is among a series of commemorative activities organized by Diversity & Community Engagement; upcoming events include a Diversi-tea Dialogue, focusing on black poets and their works, at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday in Room 105C of the Campus Center, and a free showing of “42,” a film about baseball’s Jackie Robinson, at 7 that night in the Student & Administrative Services Center presentation room.
