Austin Peay State University

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – The Eighth Annual Black History Bowl at Austin Peay State University has been rescheduled for 5:00pm, February 1st, in the Music/Mass Communication Building’s Mabry Concert Hall. The event, a scholastic competition open to teams from local schools, was originally scheduled for January 25th, but inclement weather and local school closings made it necessary to reschedule.

“The purpose of the bowl is to build a sense of collegiality among students,” Dr. Barbara Peterson, associate professor of education, said. “It gives them an opportunity to have a high command of knowledge and to apply that knowledge.”

The APSU Student Tennessee Education Association (STEA) club is partnering with APSU’s Wilbur N. Daniel African American Cultural Center, the APSU ROTC program and the College of Education’s Project MORE Scholars to host the event, and NewsChannel5 reporter Marcus Washington is scheduled to serve as the event’s emcee.

Local schools received study packets for the event, and the scholastic bowl will have teams facing off on different topics of black history, such as arts and entertainment, biography, history, military history, science, sports and facts and trivia.

Peterson also said the event helps develop a deeper cultural awareness among students in the community, as well as allowing them to cultivate collaborative skills and teamwork strategies.
