Enhancing the cultural college experience of students at Mississippi State University!
The Holmes Cultural Diversity Center is named after Dr. Richard E. Holmes, the first African American alumnus. He made history by becoming the first African American to enroll at Mississippi State University in July 1965. Completing his Bachelor at MSU, he would later go on to attend Michigan State Medical School and receive a Doctor of Medicine degree. In 1991, MSU recognized Holmes’ campus achievements and medical career by naming the University’s Multicultural Center in his honor.
Join us as we discuss the 2017 Maroon Edition selection, "The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates." The book club will provide an opportunity to have in-depth discussions across various themes including identity, personal values, the role of decisions and choices in long-term outcomes, redemption and overcoming obstacles, the role of community and external support, and how to set and achieve goals. In addition, you will have the opportunity to meet and develop relationships with fellow Mississippi State students as well as the faculty or staff member facilitating the session.
