NUSU African Canadian Cultural Club
On Friday, February 29, 2008 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Nipissing University Theatre (located inside the Nipissing Campus), the students of Nipissing University and members of NUSU’s African Canadian Cultural Club will be putting together a presentation in celebration of Black History Month. The theme of this event is “The Power of Knowledge: educating our generation”. The community of North Bay as a whole, as well as the school community is sincerely invited to come take part in sharing this experience with students who are working hard and tirelessly to assure the success of this event.
The night will not only be situated on the sharing of our knowledge on history and its importance but it will also be a night of fun and amusement. With an African and Caribbean dance performance, poetry and spoken word recitals, a drama performance, as well as a cultural fashion show the night is sure to not only be educative but interestingly entertaining. Guest speakers will highlight this occasion, all speaking on the theme stated above.
NUSU African Canadian Cultural Club was created at the beginning of the 2007-2008 school year and its main objective is to educate the students and community on social, economic, political and cultural matters that affect African Canadians in our society. This club accentuates the growing diversity of the city of North Bay as well as Nipissing University. With the continual increase in international students attending the University such a club has been beneficial up to date in welcoming these students.
This event is free to the public. All are welcome, children and parents.
“A journey of a thousand steps begins with just one”; though this is the first time such an event will be taking place, it is assured that it will progress and become greater but only with the help of individuals who support such great causes.
