Oklahoma Christian University’s Black Student Union invites the public to a free panel forum in recognition of Black History Month.

Beginning at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, the event is titled “My Black America.” Panelists include Oklahoma City Thunder broadcaster Grant Long, KOCO news anchor Wendell Edwards, Dallas Cowboys Stadium human resources director Monica Brooks, OC professor Dr. Lawrence Murray and OC admissions counselor Candace Owens.

The event will be moderated by Gary Jones, OC’s multicultural and service learning coordinator. Jones also serves as the sponsor for Oklahoma Christian’s BSU.

“This event serves as a great venue to hear perspectives on what it means to be black in America in 2013,” Jones said. “Our speakers are very accomplished professionals from Oklahoma City and Dallas. They understand the sacrifices made by those for whom Black History Month was created to honor, as well as the challenges that still exist.”

The panel discussion will be held in the Adams Recital Hall in the Garvey Center on the OC campus. For more information, email gary.jones@oc.edu.
