Black Film Week, hosted by Black Caucus, looks to generate discussion and collaboration between multicultural student organizations at Penn State.

Penn State’s Black Caucus, the umbrella organization that serves as the representative body for minority students and clubs on the University Park campus is hosting Black Film Week, a week of film and collaborative discussion.

The first film is Poverty Inc. and will be sponsored by the African Student Association on Monday, April 11 at 6 p.m. in 160 Willard. On Tuesday, Dancehall Queen will be shown at 6 p.m. in 62 Willard by the Caribbean Students Association.

Along with the film week, Black Caucus has a lot in store for the rest of the semester. The organization will be at the World Cultural Fair on Tuesday, April 12 from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. on the first floor of the HUB and will put on a Gospel Lounge April 23 from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. in Freeman Auditorium. The biggest event to end the year will be Now More Than Ever Week, which will take place April 19-23.
