Black Saga & Regulation: Primer for Black Empowerment: Underrepresented populations have an extensive and dense layer of epic achievements within the construction and ideological production of the United States. Oral histories of the past benefit offspring of enslaved Africans in ways that help them understand, cope, and develop an awareness of our movement forward. That mustard seed of faith from the ancestors have provided the catalyst for Black empowerment through our struggle. Join us as we display student research and the Black Aesthetic, which will emphasize racial pride, an appreciation of African heritage, and a commitment to produce works that reflect the culture and experiences of black people.
