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, Jonique Lyles (’16) discusses: the African proverb “Until the lion has his own historian, the tale of the hunt will always glorify the hunter;” AACC Program Coordinator Toni Harris Thorpe (known as “Mama Thorpe”); the value of the African American Cultural Center (AACC) and its library; the weekly “What’s on the Table” open forum hosted at the AACC; an incident in summer 2015 when African American high schoolers came to campus for a summer camp, and passersby called campus police during their tradition of painting the Free Expression Tunnel; partnerships and support from the AACC, Undergraduate Admissions Office, and Parent and Family Services Office; and the need for education on diversity and inclusion as NC State continues to grow.
