‘Lest We Forget’

Gingerbread Brookings This year’s Black Anthology production, “Lest We Forget,” focused on the tumultuous 1960s — a time when university students protested unequal treatment and demanded more African-American studies departments. Now in its 22nd year, the student-run production is held annually during Black History Month. Through drama, poetry, dance and music, students seek to educate people about African-American culture and to highlight important issues of racism and human rights.
