The Office of Multicultural Affairs at Syracuse University will celebrate Black History Month with Coach Ken Carter Thursday, February 11 at the Schine Student Center Goldstein Auditorium. The event is free and will take place at 7:30 p.m.
When famed high school basketball coach Ken Carter literally locked his undefeated, state play-off bound team out of the gym and forced them to hit the books and stop counting on athletic potential as the only ticket out of a tough, inner city life, he sent a powerful message. The film, Coach Carter, based on the lock-out and starring Samuel L. Jackson as the Coach, is just one more testimony to the strength of his convictions.
This event is sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Affairs, The Partnership for Better Education and University College.
