"We wanted to show our appreciation for Black culture, " said Bah. "So we wanted to make events as far as like, something to represent so that we're still here."
While these events are meant to celebrate black history, they can draw a variety of students of all cultures, allowing them to stay engaged and participate in a number of educational and fun activities. All are welcome to take part and help celebrate black excellence.
