BEAUMONT – Lamar Institute of Technology has three events planned to celebrate Black History Month.
On Feb. 12, the movie “Men of Honour” will be shown in the Multi-Purpose Center conference room at 802 E. Lavaca. The movie, which stars Cuba Gooding Jr. and Robert DeNiro, tells the story of Carl Brashear, the first African-American U.S. Navy diver. The movie will run from 2-4 p.m.
On Feb. 19, from 10 a.m. to noon, LIT will have a program at the Multi-Purpose Center. Pastor John R. Adolph from Antioch Missionary Baptist Church is the guest speaker. The program will also feature entertainment from LIT students and friends. A light lunch will be served after the event.
Dr. Jimmy Adams will present “The Journey: Reality, A Recital of Poetry on the Realities of Life” from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. on Feb. 26, also at the MPC.
“The Journey” is a rendering of original poems and thoughts set to music. These poems reflect Dr. Adams’ feelings and thoughts on his experiences through his life’s journey from the projects of Tuscaloosa, Ala., to now.
All events are open to the public and are free of charge.
