In honor of Black History Month, join us for an evening filled with song, dance, laughter and excitement!
Throughout generations of indigenous African communities and cultures, storytelling has been used as a powerful vessel of linguistic communication, whether it be for the purpose of maintaining cultural values, or in times of slavery, to pass on methods of survival. In honor of Black History Month, we invite you to join the African and Caribbean Student Association (ACSA) as they bring to light the ways in which storytelling, song and dance are all artistically entwined within the roots of the African diaspora.
This is a student-led initiative hosted by the ACSA, the Student’s Association at MacEwan University (SAMU) and the Office of Human Rights Diversity and Equity.
This is a free event open to the public. Limited seating available, register to save your spot.
Black History Month 2020 is a university-wide celebration that aims to raise awareness of the contributions made by Black Canadians to Canada’s culture and legacy, past and present. All events are free to attend and open to the public, however, registration may be required.
We acknowledge that the land on which we gather in Treaty Six Territory is the traditional gathering place for many Indigenous people. We honour and respect the history, languages, ceremonies and culture of the First Nations, Métis and Inuit who call this territory home.
