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, Amani Manning (‘17) discusses: the weekly “What’s on the Table” open forum hosted by the African American Cultural Center (AACC); the AACC as the center of life on campus for him; the role of the AACC in helping him transition from a small town to life as an underrepresented minority on a large, predominantly white campus; AACC Program Coordinator Toni Harris Thorpe (known as “Mama Thorpe”); being an AYA Ambassador, and learning leadership skills and black history; the value of having a library and gallery dedicated to African American culture and art in the AACC; the African proverbs “Until the lion has his own historian, the tale of the hunt will always glorify the hunter,” and “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, to together;” and the value of using one’s voice and telling one’s own story.
