- 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, Cynthia M. Sharpe (‘15), Destinie Statum (‘17), and Jakini Kauba (‘17) discuss: discovering the African American Cultural Center (AACC) as a second home; AACC Program Coordinator Toni Harris Thorpe (known as “Mama Thorpe”); finding community, support, and motivation as underrepresented minorities on a predominantly white campus; the importance of having a safe space on campus; the weekly “What’s on the Table” open forum hosted by the AACC; listening and valuing diverse perspectives; being in a sorority together; and the importance of the statement, “I am,” and of loving and owning one’s identity.
