Ladies, if you’ve ever wondered how men think, you may be able to find out this Thursday.
A panel called “Mind of a Man,” hosted by the Ferris chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, will be taking place in order to do just that.
“I guess one way to look at it is, one thing we’re big on is diversity and empathy,” said Ozurumba Nyeche, a senior in criminal justice and sergeant-at-arms of the Ferris chapter of NAACP. “Yeah, it’s going to be fun and it’s going to be entertaining, but we want people to understand that everyone doesn’t think the same, especially between genders.”
On the other end of the scale, if men are wondering how ladies think, there will be a similar event coming soon.
“We’re doing the same thing next semester, ‘Mind of a Woman,’ where guys have to have to be the ones to try to think like women,” said Nyeche. “It just gives the opposite sex a look or perspective that you might not naturally take.”
Nyeche said that the panel will be held in almost a game-style, where random contestants will be chosen, and the panel members will help the contestants answer questions.
“They’ll be onstage, right across from the contestants because they’re pretty much there to help the contestants answer the questions,” said Nyeche. “They’ll just give their input on what they think the answer is, and why that is.”
For the time being, Nyeche and the president of the Ferris chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, Breia Harris will be hosting the event, but will be subject to change.
“We’d like to get anywhere from 30-40 people, if we can get them in there,” said Nyeche, who hopes for a good turnout on Thursday evening.
“Everything that we do as an organization, whether it’s silly, or controversial to some degree, or educational, has a purpose,” said Nyeche, of the Ferris chapter of NAACP. “We just want to use the entertainment as a portion of this event to give people new perspective. I am very happy with the idea, and I’m hoping everybody will come out and have a good time. It should be a really good show.”
The panel will be held on Thursday, November 13 at 7 p.m. in IRC 107.
