Description:
This recording was conducted in the Talley Student Union on the campus of North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina, at the NCSU African American Cultural Center’s 2016 Harambee event. In the recording, Brooke Brown (‘17) discusses: discovering the African American Cultural Center (AACC) as a freshman; meeting AACC Program Coordinator Toni Harris Thorpe (known as “Mama Thorpe”); what the AACC has meant to her as a student; the importance of having a safe space on campus; the value of using one’s voice and telling one’s own story; and the African proverbs “Until the lion has his own historian, the tale of the hunt will always glorify the hunter,” and “A leader who cannot take advice is not a leader.” [Preferred citation: Wolf Tales recording with Brooke Brown, 8 September 2016, NCSU Libraries Wolf Tales Recordings, MC 00581, Special Collections Research Center, North Carolina State University Libraries, Raleigh, NC]
