Film: 'Bilal's Stand,' Feb. 15, 7 p.m., Norris 101
Bilal, a black Muslim high school senior in Detroit, works long hours to keep up both his grades and his family's long-owned taxi stand. "The Stand" has been the family's social and financial hub for sixty years, but Bilal secretly submits a college application and takes up ice carving in order to win a scholarship. Now he is forced to decide whether to continue running The Stand or take a path that differs from family expectations.
The presentation of Bilal's Stand is one of the many events highlighting "The Black Diaspora," the theme of Albion College's Black History Month. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Albion College's Office of Intercultural Affairs, 517/629-0501.
