We are well into our Black History Month celebrations, and there are plenty more to come! The Center for IDEAS and student organizations all over Ithaca College have been working to make this month one that honors Black History at our institution in an engaging way. Below are events happening on campus, ranging from a student organization-run Talent Showcase to educational sessions on blackness and social justice work. This month's theme is "Mending Our Broken Hearts." 

Melanincholy by Damiano “The Miserable Genius”, Presented by Café Con IDEAS

Café con IDEAS provides a platform for student-artists to develop and project their voice in a 45-minute set while sharing personal narratives rooted in identity and anti-oppression. Ranging from comedy, spoken word, dance and performance, song, and visual creations, each session is designed to engage the audience through creative arts and empower individuals to look inward and consider their own responsibility to social change.

This first set will include rap, poetry, and visual art focused on Black thought and freedom. Light refreshments will be served.
