OC Hosts 'My Black America' Panel Discussion

OC's Black Student Union hosted a free panel forum in recognition of Black History Month. 

Panelists included Oklahoma City Thunder broadcaster Grant Long, KOCO anchor Wendell Edwards, Cowboys Stadium human resources director Monica Brooks, OC professor Dr. Lawrence Murray and OC admissions counselor Candace Owens.

“This event serves as a great venue to hear perspectives on what it means to be black in America in 2013,” said Gary Jones (06), OC’s multicultural and service learning coordinator. “Our speakers are very accomplished professionals who understand the sacrifices made by those for whom Black History Month was created to honor, as well as the challenges that still exist.”
