A graduate of UNC Charlotte's English department will explore the connection between her liberal arts education and her election as the first African American mayor of Asheville during her keynote talk as part of English Major Days.
On Wednesday, March 12 at 4:30 PM in Storrs 110, Terry M. Bellamy will present "How an English Major from UNC Charlotte Became Mayor of Asheville, N.C." Students from all majors are invited to this talk and other events on these two days, which are free and open to the public.
Bellamy has said her studies gave her an appreciation for the diversity and complexity of ideas. "A liberal arts degree helps you understand not just how to connect the dots, but what happens when you connect the dots," she said.
UNC Charlotte’s Women’s History Month programs will showcase and discuss the many issues facing women throughout history. Sponsored by the Multicultural Resource Center (MRC), the programs are free and open to the public.
"Women’s experiences are very complex, and the issues for women intersect with a lot of other communities," said Joshua Burford, assistant director for sexual / gender diversity for the MRC. "We wanted to expand the conversation to talk about women and their allies from both a contemporary and historical context."
