Coming Up on Campus

Upcoming Club Events


IN THE SPIRIT OF ZORA! (Oct. 28 7:30-9:00 pm, 304 Barnard Hall)

In conjunction with BCRW’s Hurston@125 conference on October 28, celebrate In the Spirit of Zora with the Black Theater Ensemble (BTE) and the Barnard Organization of Soul Sisters (B.O.S.S) from 7:30 pm - 9 pm in 304 Barnard Hall!

As a tribute to Zora Neale Hurston (~1891-1960) who trail blazed representation of African American women in literature and the arts through her life and career, In the Spirit of Zora continues Hurston’s legacy by performing her work in a contemporary setting, in collaboration with modern pieces created by members of the campus community.

From Hurston’s time at Barnard, to Brooks 7, to today, In the Spirit of Zora portrays the experience of black students in residence at Barnard. Through poetry, dance, song, and theatre, this event explores the multifaceted narratives of students demanding and maintaining their place on campus.

The $1 event fee will fund the Black Theatre Ensemble’s fall production, preserving the presence of black arts on Barnard and Columbia’s campus. There will also be delicious refreshments! Let us know if you're joining us at our Facebook event!
