Black Heritage Series Opening Convocation

by on February 11th, 2011

Justin Coles ’11 and Tevin Jackson ’14 are this year’s programmers for Black Heritage Series.  Wednesday night (2/9) was the opening convocation with Jonathan Blanchard.  Ramsie Jeremie ’12 opened with two poems.  Antar Tichavakunda ’11 gave a senior reflection on his experience being Black at Brown over the past four years.

Blanchard is a baritone singer.  His performance of music in the Black Spiritual Tradition was moving and really touched the soul.  He also tied in historical references of slavery in American, creating a space for learning, celebrating and building community.  Check out pictures from the event and look out for more Black Heritage Series events!
