The week will include thought provoking discussions, demonstrations, organization collaborations and more in order to pay homage to the experiences that black women face daily.
Here is the line-up for this year’s Black Women Rock Week:

Tuesday, March 15

Wednesday, March 16

The Wrap Up Move Night
This year is BSU’s fifth year putting on the Black Women Rock event. The event started as a response to the lack of shows/events that celebrated Black women on Penn State’s Campus. Black Women Rock always occurs in March which is Women’s History Month.
This year’s guest appearance for the event will be rapper, musician and song-writer Tink. Award Categories for Black Women Rock include athletics, academics, leadership, humanitarian, motivational, community, as well as faculty recognition.
Black Women Rock takes place on Saturday, March 19 at 5 p.m. at the Day’s Inn located in downtown State College. Tickets are $15.00 for students and $20.00 for non-students.
