Black History Month online panel discussions open to the public

Mon Feb 1, 2021

Brazosport College is inviting the public to participate in its Black History Month celebration through a variety of online panel discussions and a cooking workshop.

This year’s theme is “Black History Matters,” and the Brazosport College community will be gathering online to watch documentaries and participate in workshops throughout the month of February.

In addition, the College is opening up four different virtual panel discussions to the public through the Zoom video communications application. These discussions are focused on different issues, including mental health, Greek life and a variety of educational topics. One discussion will be offered each week throughout the month of February.

As a bonus, a Do-It-Yourself Virtual Cooking Workshop with Chef Dee Dee, owner of Cooking with a Twist in Stafford, is also being opened to the community.

Cooking with a Twist has appeared on Houston-area television programs and newspapers, as well as being featured on ABC’s Emmy-award winning show, “The Chew.”

Participation in the panel discussions and the cooking event is free, but registration must be completed 24 hours before the date of the event. Zoom meeting links and other details will be sent through e-mail. Visit choosebc.info/bhm21 to register for events.
