|The African American Cultural Center will host its second annual AfroPack event on October 19, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Witherspoon Student Center. The event is free and open to the campus community, students at nearby universities, as well as to prospective students and their families visiting campus for Open House. This year’s theme is “Stories of Home” with a focus on telling and retelling narratives of Blackness locally and globally.
“This day is a time to celebrate Black joy in all its facets,” says African American Cultural Center Program Coordinator John Robinson-Miller IV, who conceived of the event last year as a celebratory gathering to break up the academic year. “We center oppression in many of our narratives, so this is an opportunity for us to have joy.”
