The Museum of East Texas in Lufkin will hold a panel discussion Saturday that will probe the cultural evolution of African American women in three aspects of life: higher education, politics and religion. Angelina College associate dean Sellestine Hunt will moderate the discussion. She wants to examine how far African American women have come, and acknowledge there are many obstacles today.

Angelina College in Lufkin, Texas, is hosting its STEM Day Friday. The college will bring in about 200 area high school seniors for a day that’s meant to inspire them about careers in science, technology, engineering and math. David Rusk is the associate director of the college’s math and science division. He teaches engineering courses.
