MANSFIELD, OH - In honor of Black History Month, the OSU Mansfield branch has held several events promoting diversity, including a "soul food dinner" that 200 people attended Thursday evening.

Those who purchased tickets to the dinner arrived at the Eisenhower Center at 5:30 PM. The meal, which was catered by CMJ's Concessions & Catering, included ribs, macaroni and cheese, greens, and a variety of desserts. Guests were entertained with live music, spoken word poetry, and an art gallery.

This year's event was the 18th one to be held on OSU Mansfield's campus, but the first to be run by Diversity Coach Joi Davis. 

"It is linking us all together as far as red, yellow, black and white, coming together as one big family," said Davis. This year's theme was "I, too, am America." The event was completely sold out with 200 attendees.
