Kellogg Community College’s Student Life office invites students and community members alike to participate in a Black History Month field trip to Detroit this month to visit sites celebrating the history and contributions of African-Americans.

Transportation for the trip will be provided by KCC, with the bus leaving the College’s North Avenue campus, 450 North Ave., Battle Creek, at 8 a.m. Friday, Feb. 21. The group will visit the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History and the Motown Museum – home of Hitsville U.S.A. – and return at approximately 8 p.m.

“The city of Detroit has experienced a lot of negative press and attention over the last year, but the city has many important positive cultural and historical aspects,” TaNisha Parker, manager of Student Life at KCC, said. “So when I began planning the trip I thought it would be a great opportunity for students to engage in the celebration of history, art and culture Detroit has to offer.”

Tickets for the trip are on sale now at KCC’s Student Life office and cost $30 for KCC students with a current KCC ID and $40 for nonstudents. The ticket prices do not include lunch or spending money.

For more information or to order tickets, contact KCC’s Student Life office at 269-565-2634 or studentlife@kellogg.edu.
