Students and performers at African American Culture Night:


Patience Jones, Wakefield Senior

Q: What is the significance of Black History Month to you?

Black History Month is a month for us to just extra-celebrate black culture and our ancestors and what they mean to us.

Q: How do you define black culture?

I would say it’s a sense of brotherhood, sisterhood, and just an overall togetherness when the bad times are at their peak.

 


 

 

Kennedy Kittrell, Wakefield Senior

Q: What were your thoughts on the event?

I thought the event was very important to black culture, very influential, informative, and beautiful. My favorite part was Neeko’s one-man performance, it was really well organized and well thought out and it was also beautiful.

 

 


 

Neeko J Williams, NC A&T Performer

Q: Why are you proud of your culture?

You can not ever know who you are until you know who you’ve been or where you come from, you just can’t do it. There’s this thing called “cultural amnesia” that people have, and if they don’t address where they came from, they’ll come to a point in their life where something happens to them, or they’re met with something that kind of shakes them, and if they don’t know where they’ve come from, it would be impossible for them to go forward.
