Queens College will celebrate Black History Month in February with a wide range of offerings for faculty, staff, and students. Among them is a fireside chat with Bruce Jackson, attorney and author of the forthcoming 'Never Far from Home: My Journey from Brooklyn to Hip Hop, Microsoft, and the Law,' facilitated by Jerima Dewese, chief diversity officer/dean of diversity at Queens College, on Thursday, February 9, at 12:15 pm in the President’s Lounge of the campus Dining Hall

After earning a law degree from Georgetown University, Jackson worked in entertainment law for a decade, co-founding his own law firm and advising some of the top musical talent in the country—notably helping hip-hop pioneer LL Cool J regain ownership of his early recordings.

Additional offerings include a Black History Month trivia program; a presentation by internationally acclaimed poet, playwright, and performance artist Ebony Stewart, whose work concerns the Black experience—especially gender, sexuality, womanhood, queer-positivity, and race; and a talk by Queens College Art History Professor Lawrence Waldron on how modern artists challenged the picturesque and deceptively idealized images of the colonial period, exposing the exploitation of the region’s land and people through their use of a far more critical lens.
