UW-Green Bay Black History Month
activities include music, speakers, dinner
GREEN BAY - Live performances, speakers and a soul food dinner will highlight Black History Month activities at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay in February.
"Awakening" is the theme selected by the UW-Green Bay Black Student Union for the annual celebration of Black History Month.
"The theme was chosen as a result of history taking place around us, and we have yet to claim our place as 'African' Americans in this country," said Jane Swan, Black Student Union adviser.
Kathy Koehne, event coordinator for the Black Student Union, said there is good reason to celebrate Black History Month.
"This is an important time for African Americans, as we celebrate our heritage, reflect on both our struggles and triumphs as a people, and continue to work toward fulfilling the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.," Koehne said.
The Black Student Union welcomes everyone to join the celebration of African American experiences throughout history by attending the Black History Month events at UW-Green Bay. The events, which are free and open to the public, include:
• African American Appreciation Day, Thursday, Feb. 1. African American Appreciation Day celebrates the colors of the month (red, black and green) by passing out ribbons made by Black Student Union members. These ribbons may be obtained by visiting the students' display and table in the alcove of the Cofrin Library from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
• Naturally Seven, Monday, Feb. 5, 8 p.m., Phoenix Rooms, University Union. The group's intricate seven-part harmonies artfully blend gospel, jazz, R&B, hip-hop and even classical vocal genres. Naturally Seven's members all hail from the New York metropolitan area and have been friends and musical partners for years. Their faith-infused music reaches across denominations, striking common chords of human experience among religious and secular audiences alike. This event is sponsored by UW-Green Bay Good Times Programming.
• Storysong, Wednesday, Feb. 7, 8 p.m., Phoenix Rooms, University Union. Storysong is a group of artists, educators, and musicians originally from Ghana, Jamaica, Trinidad, and the United States. Its members — Derrick Ashong, James Shelton, Jonathan Mark Grambling, and Sheldon Reid — have combined their talents to create a musical history of black people in the modern world. This event is sponsored by UW-Green Bay Good Times Programming.
• Citizen King, Monday, Feb. 12, 7 p.m., Christie Theatre, University Union. This movie is about the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
• Soul Food Dinner, Saturday, Feb. 17, 6:30 p.m., Ecumenical Center. The guest speaker is Christopher D. Swan, president and CEO of Swan Corp 1 and a general contractor.
Swan has served on numerous boards of directors and has been involved with the renovation of Lambeau Field, the home of the Green Bay Packers. He was appointed by the governor to the Baylake Regional Planning Commission in 2005 and to the Business Opportunity Commission in 2006. In 2001, he received the Small Business of the Year award from the Green Bay Area Chamber of Commerce. He currently is building the second Swan House in Green Bay, affordable housing for single parents attending college.
The Soul Food Dinner's menu consists of fried chicken wings, baked turkey, collard greens with cornbread, black-eyed peas, candied yams, sweet corn, cornbread dressing with cranberry sauce, rice, baked macaroni and cheese, pound cake and homemade lemonade. Jeff Willems and the Residence Hall and Apartment Association are co-sponsoring the dinner with the Black Student Union.

Kersten book explores life of
civil rights leader Randolph
GREEN BAY -University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Prof. Andrew Kersten explores the influence and achievements of labor and civil rights leader A. Philip Randolph in the new biography, A. Philip Randolph: A Life in the Vanguard.
In the book, released this month by Rowman and Littlefield Publishers, Kersten pays particular attention to Randolph's political philosophy, his involvement in the labor and civil rights movements, and his dedication to improving the lives of American workers.
Randolph was among several key civil rights leaders in the United States prior to the emergence of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
Born in the South at the start of the Jim Crow era, Randolph was a major figure in the movement to expand civil, social and economic rights in America. A Socialist and a radical, he devoted his life to energizing the black masses into collective action. He successfully organized the all-black Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters and led the March on Washington Movement during World War II.
Individual chapters focus on Randolph's formative years in Florida and New York City, his civil rights struggles during the Cold War, and the 1963 March on Washington, which Kersten calls his "finest hour."
One reviewer said the book reminds us that the roots of the 20th century civil rights movement are found as much in the urban North as in the rural South.
"Kersten never lets us forget that Randolph proved such a successful tribune because he faithfully advanced the aspirations of a restless, multiracial working class, within the world of Pullman service and without," wrote Nelson Lichtenstein, director of the Center for Work, Labor and Democracy at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
Another reviewer said Kersten's book should be the biography of choice on Randolph for general readers as well as those interested in more specific details of Randolph's life.
Kersten hopes the book "rekindles interest in the great labor and civil rights leader whose life still holds great meaning for all Americans today."
"Randolph's quests and struggles remain our quests and struggles: an equitable society without discrimination based on race, creed, color, national origin, sex, and union affiliation," he said.
Kersten, associate professor and chair of Social Change and Development at UW-Green Bay, is the author of the recently released Labor's Home Front: The American Federation of Labor during World War II. He also is the author of Race, Jobs and the War: The FEPC in the Midwest and Politics and Progress: The American State and Society since the Civil War.
Kersten joined the UW-Green Bay faculty in 1997 after earning master's and Ph.D. degrees in American history at the University of Cincinnati. He earned his bachelor's degree at UW-Madison.
