More than 160 people came to celebrate Black History Month at the 11th Annual Soul Food Dinner in the Eisenhower Campus Cafe at The Ohio University Mansfield campus Thursday night.

The smell of barbecued chicken and baked macaroni and cheese greeted the crowd of people. The annual event is sponsored by North Central State College, The Ohio State University Mansfield and Ashland University.

  This year's dinner also included green beans, greens, cornbread and a wide variety of desserts.

  The next upcoming event as part of the Black History Month Celebration will be "Community Conversation:Hookwinked" on Tuesday, Feb. 26  at 6 p.m. in the Mansfield Senior High School Auditorium.
 

The stereotypes of African-Americans in our communities and the portrayal of young African-Americans in the mainstream media will be discussed.
