As Black History Month continues, Chestnut Hill College's Office of Diversity & Inclusion, Beatsquad and Black Student Union invites you to our next program, a lecture by Timothy Welbeck, on the Evolution of Hip Hop on Thursday, Feb, 21st from 6:00 - 8:00 pm in St. Joseph's Hall, Redmond Room. Like the Grand Opening of the Beatlab, this program is a production of our very own, Dr. Jeffrey Carroll and will be an extension of that first event. There will also be a short tour of the Beatlab afterward, for those that are interested. We hope to see you there. This event is free and open to the public, so please feel free to invite friends, family, etc.
