8:30 AM National Celebration of Black Women 2019 will mark the 400th commemoration year since the first African captives arrived at the shore of Jamestown, Virginia in the year 1619.

National Celebration of Black Women was born out of a necessity to recognize the women in American history that emerged from slavery, defied the odds and came out victorious!

​On this day, March 2, 2019, during Women's History Month, black women are joining hands across the nation in celebration of our phenomenal ancestry and contributions in building America.

There will be a March starting at 8:30 AM from the corner of North Harbor Dr. and Park Ave to be followed by a celebration in Ruocco Park at 10:00 AM.

Admission/Cost: FREE

Location:
Ruocco Park
585 North Harbor Dr.

7:30 PM Stage: The Misanthrope USCD Theatre & Dance stages Moliere's masterpiece about the curmudgeon's curmudgeon, in which the great French playwright exposes the "frivolity and inconsistency of his contemporaries." Nicholas Rapp directs.

Exhausted with uncertainty, Alceste finds himself at a party in order to uncover the true nature of Celimene's affections. There he encounters society; a slick, capricious people, who are, in Alceste's estimation, embodiments of decaying values and apathy in the face of corruption. With an unjust lawsuit hanging over his head, he comes to realize first hand the merit of speaking disingenuously as a course to survive. Alceste must finally decide whether his personal convictions are more or less important than his place in this world. 1666. A comedy.
