The debut of laser tag at Kirby Sports Center is among several events taking place on campus this weekend.

A student discussion titled “Killing Me Softly: Media Representations of Black Women” will take place 6 p.m. today in Keefe Commons. The forum will focus on various portrayals of black women, including the historical context of certain stereotypes. Free food will be provided.

Students will direct and perform The Colored Musuem, a comedy by George C. Wolfe, 8 p.m. this evening in the Farinon Center snack bar. The production deals with how African Americans can both “honor and escape the legacy of suffering that is the baggage of their past.” Sponsored by the Office of Intercultural Development and Brothers of Lafayette, the Black History Month event is free and open to the Lafayette community.

Lafayette Activities Forum will screen the film I Spy, starring Eddie Murphy, Owen Wilson, and Famke Janssen, in the Farinon Center’s Limburg Theater 7 and 10 p.m. today and Saturday, and 10 p.m. Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. Based on the 1960s television series of the same name, the film is about a professional boxer (Murphy) who has to help a U.S. government agent recover a missing jet. Admission is $2.

Students are invited to challenge their friends to a free game of laser tag 9 p.m. Saturday in the new inflatable setup at Kamine Gymnasium of Kirby Sports Center. The event is sponsored by Lafayette Activities Forum.
