OSU's Black Artist & Author Expo Highlights Jeannie Drew

If you are in Stillwater today, go by Oklahoma State University's Student Union Atrium and take in "Celebrating the Arts" - one of OSU's Black History Month programs. This program is hosted by OSU Women’s Programs (coordinated by Gloria Birdine), the OSU Center for African Studies and the OSU Black Faculty and Staff Associations. It features work by OSU students plus Edward Grady, faculty member and curator of the Melvin B. Tolson Black Heritage Center at Langston University and authors Donkor Khalid and Eddie Faye Gates. At noon today, there will be a special presentation by OSU's own Jeannie Drew whose quilts and textured artworks combine African fabrics and American storytelling.
