On behalf of Fullerton College’s Ethnic Studies Department and UMOJA Program presents our 22nd Annual Kwanzaa Celebration.
We are extremely excited to have Dr. Priscilla Ocen, the co-writer of Black Girls Matter as our special guest speaker. Dr. Ocen is a Professor of Law at Loyola Law School, where she teaches criminal law, family law and a seminar on race, gender and the law. Her work has appeared in academic journals such as the California Law Review, the UCLA Law Review, the George Washington Law Review, the UC Davis Law Review and the Du Bois Review as well as popular media outlets such as the Los Angeles Daily Journal, Ebony and Al Jazeera. Ocen recently received the inaugural PEN America Writing for Justice Literary Fellowship.
Our program also features our very own Mr. Ernest Bridges who is conducting the Kwanzaa ceremony, a special performance by the Dembrebrah Drum and Dance Ensemble, performances by Fullerton College students, and a pre-event reception with free food and drinks.
With such an amazing line-up, we are trying to fill every seat in the Wilshire Theater. It’s an opportunity to experience and celebrate African American culture first-hand.
We hope that you and your family will be able to join us.
