‘Black Love Matters’ on Feb. 15

Dr. Terri Smith

It’s the day after Valentine’s Day, but “Black Love Matters” is still a timely discussion about healthy relationships and marriage.

Dr. Terri Smith, an adjunct instructor in the School of Social Work, will lead a panel discussion from 5-6:30 p.m. in the Hardy Hall Ballroom of  the Gulf Park campus. The event is part of the Black History Month celebration.

The event “will consist of three diverse couples, one being married almost 60 years,” says Dr. Smith, who is special projects coordinator for Student Affairs at USM. “This would be of interest to students, faculty and staff as many struggle with commitment and spirituality in relationships, and viable ways to communicate effectively in a relationship.

“With today’s rising numbers of divorces and failed relationships, this event will showcase how couples survive adversity.”

A reminder that you can find events like this and more through the School of Social Work calendar.
