Students Celebrate Black History, Heritage

Hampton University hosted several events throughout February to commemorate Black History Month. Included in the month's fanfare was a three-week seminar series entitled "How Did the Root Get Broken?" which addressed the black community on everything from love and relationships to the state of the black man and woman. Also, the Black Heritage Extravaganza production "Strange Fruit In A 4reign Land," was featured in Ogden Hall to a standing room only crowd. The month's events culminated with a Black History Month Cultural Explosion that included spoken word, cultural foods and various vendors

The Black Family Conference, held March 12-14, will address the black family's role in saving the planet on a local and global level, living healthy and learning about legislative processes and education.

This year's conference will include the 13th Annual Research Day Symposium, which highlights investigative research projects by high school, undergraduate and graduate students. The conference is free and open to the public. The closing luncheon is $25 per person.
