The FIT Soul Club was created after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968, and lasted until 1991. Inspired by the FIT Soul Club fashion shows’ exuberance, positivity, and dynamism, the library has been conducting an oral history project with faculty, students, and alumni to share the experience of the Soul Club with the community. This project culminates in a public event during Black History Month featuring an in-person panel of speakers with excerpts from the Soul Club fashion show videos.
Moderator: Taur Orange, director of the Educational Opportunity Program.
This event is part of the FIT Diversity Collective’s 2023 Black History Month activities.
