February is Black History Month
Join us for a special Saturday Event

When: Saturday, February 21, 2015, presentation at 11:30 am, center open from 11am - 2pm

Rosa Colquitt grew up in a military family living on various army bases on the East Coast. She attended college in North Carolina, completing her PH.D. degree at North Carolina State University in Research Studies. Prior to her doctorate studies, the focus of Rosa's undergraduate education was English and Ethnic Studies. It was during that time that she devoted her Master's thesis to the topic of the "Women characters in the prose and short stories of Harlem Renaissance writer, Langston Hughes." To the present date, Hughes remains as Rosa's favorite American writer. Since moving to Oregon to join her family in 1989, Rosa has spent many years speaking to literary circles, high schools, colleges and at other cultural events on a range of topics relevant to African American literature and history. As a highly sought after speaker for national Black History Month events, Rosa says February is obviously her busiest time of the year!
