Black History Month Celebration: Video and Photos

AULA black history monthIn celebration of Black History Month, the Black Student Union hosted “The Writes of Passage: Words That Move Generations,” an afternoon that celebrated Black literature, essays, and original works. Our own Erin Aubry Kaplan, Carmalita Jackson, Eric Priestly, Jeffery Martin, Marva Smith, Lena Cole-Dennis, and Levy Lee Simon shared poetry, essays, and historic texts.


“The presenters were wonderful and shared powerful stories and  original works that spoke volumes about life for African Americans,” said Black Student Union Chair Tracee Green. “We were all filled with inspiration and our spirits renewed. I’m very proud of outcome of this event. We worked hard to provide something spectacular for our Antioch community.”
