Last week, my club- the Smith Black MBA Association, hosted a celebration in honor of Black History Month. It was so much fun! I have to say, the most exciting part of the event was the FOOD! Yummy! I love trying food from different cultures. We had foods from Jamaica, Cuba, Africa, and of course America to honor the African Diaspora.
The entertainment was excellent as well- we had a step performance by a UMD fraternity, singing of the Black National Anthem, and one of the first year Black MBA members played the flugelhorn to honor African-Americans in Jazz history.
All in all, it was stressful getting everything together, but it was worth it to be able to share some of my culture with the Smith community. Good times!
