The West Palm Beach campus celebrated Black History Month with two objectives in mind; to educate students, staff and faculty on contributions of African-Americans in five categories; Music, Arts, Inventors, Film and Authors; and to continue the dialogue about the African-American experience.
Student groups from RT, OTA and Nursing conducted brief education sessions in the areas of Inventions, Film and the Arts. Our librarian provided education on African American authors and a Legal Studies faculty provided education on the origins of African American Music. Students were given an autograph booklet which was used to obtain an autograph of a person featured in each category. Upon completion of obtaining autographs, students had to share one fact learned before entering the N’awlins food court”. In the food court was Chicken and Seafood Gumbo, rice, cornbread, peach cobbler, bread pudding, cakes, and sweet potato pie. Good time, good food, great people, and good reason.
