Lawrence University commemorates African-American History and Culture with its 3rd Annual program entitled “Keys to Prosperity.” The event, which replaced Lawrence’s celebration of Kwanzaa, will be held on Saturday, February 7, 2004 in the Buchanan Kiewitt Recreation Center on the Lawrence campus. Doors open at 5:00 pm with dinner and the program starting at 5:30.

This year’s program will feature a meat or vegetarian entrée and will feature student presentations of dramatic scenes and special guest speaker Mr. James Harris, a motivational and cultural speaker from Milwaukee, WI. Rod Bradley, Assistant Dean of Students for Multicultural Affairs and advisor to Lawrence’s Black Organization of Students says, “The program will be based on some of the ‘keys’ that have helped black culture achieve various levels of prosperity.”
