Students are still benefiting from the work of activist Lynn Eusan, UH's first black homecoming queen. Eusan was killed in 1971, but she was one of the founders of the University's African American Studies Program.

UH will pay homage to her and the program at the "Tribute to Lynn Eusan and founders of the UH African American Studies Program" from 6 to 8 p.m. Feb. 27 in the Oberholtzer

Eusan and other founders of the African American Studies Program will be honored as the group celebrates Black History Month.

The tribute will include recollections of the period that led to the creation of the AAS, campus atmosphere in 1968 and remembrances of Eusan.

The event will also feature profiles of DeLloyd Parker from the SHAPE Community Center, Michelle Barnes from the Community Artist Collective, attorney Gene Locke and
Omowali Lithuli of the Fifth Ward Enrichment Program.

AAS's mission goes along with the University's stated commitment to increase the appreciation of a diverse group of cultures and the regard for individual differences across

The program's goals are to inform students of the cultural and historical heritage of people of African descent and their contributions to American and world civilizations. AAS also
develops, promotes and enhances educational opportunities through teaching, research and community service.

AAS and the SHAPE Community Center helped bring a screening of A Huey P. Newton Story and the lead actor, Roger Smith, to the Rice Media Center on Saturday.
