Hi Matadors! Meet Gina Manichia who is earning her credential in Special Education. She is the winner of the Black History Matters online game and raffle winning a $50 MataMoney gift card and a Black history t-shirt. During the month of February, the Oviatt Library celebrated Black history with several Black History Matters events. One of the activities was an online Black history question game and raffle. Each day that month different questions were asked about African American history. Questions included: Who served as the last governor of California under Mexican rule and was of African descent? Answer: Pio Pico served as the last governor of California under Mexican rule. Pico Boulevard and the Pico House on Olvera Street in Los Angeles are named after him. Which city is widely acknowledged as the birthplace of Hip Hop? Answer: The Bronx, New York. Students were able to answer a different question each day. Those with correct answers were entered into the raffle. Congratulations to Gina Manichia for entering and winning the Oviatt’s Black history online game!
