Two Michiana Ivy Tech campuses will honor Black History Month by hosting soul food luncheons.

The Elkhart County campus will host a luncheon from noon to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 16, in the Community Center at 22531 C.R. 18 in Goshen. The event is being sponsored by the Elkhart County Diversity Committee and the Student Government Association in Elkhart County, according to a press release from Ivy Tech. The event is open to all students at Ivy Tech, and food will be provided by Krāv in Elkhart.

A panel of speakers will attend the luncheon, including Arvis Dawson, executive assistant to former Elkhart Mayor Dick Moore; Ron Davis, president of the NAACP Elkhart County; Tara Morris, executive director of the Minority Health Coalition of Elkhart County; and Jeremy Everett, secretary of the Student Government Association.
