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, Marc Jackson (‘17) discusses: discovering Peace Church in the Sankofa Room of the African American Cultural Center (AACC); meeting best friends at Peace Church and having breakfast in Fountain Dining Hall after weekly services; the weekly “What’s on the Table” open forum hosted at the AACC; a friend’s experience of being the minority in a predominantly white internship program and realizing that cultural references from the black community were lost on her white peers; the AACC as a second home; the importance of having a safe space on campus, especially as an underrepresented minority community on campus; and the African proverbs, “Until the lion has his own historian, the tale of the hunt will always glorify the hunter,” and “It takes a village to raise a child.”
