"Embracing the Spirits of the Past" celebrates Women's History

Lawren Shepard
Campus Life Editor

The Office of Minority Affairs, LSOP, and Disability Support Services are cosponsoring a ghost tour in celebration of Women's History Month. "Embracing the Spirits of the Past" features students from several clubs and organizations performing as influential women and women's movement groups that have made a positive impact on society.

Volunteers will use costumes, props, and music to bring the past to life and teach about the contributions women such as Sacagawea and Harriet Tubman made to the world. The Zeta Phi Beta and Lambda Theta Alpha sororities are participating and students from the Robeson County program "Dare to be Different" and Purnell Swett High School are also presenting.

In 1987, the National Women's History Project successfully petitioned Congress to make March the National Women's History Month. To find out more about the evolution of Women's History Month, visit their website linked above.

The free program will begin at 7 p.m. at the Lowry Bell tower on Wednesday, March 31. For more information, contact Director of Minority Affairs Robert Canida or at 910.522.5790.
