African- American History Month One month does not seem long enough to adequately celebrate the history and culture of a population as richly diverse as African-Americans. Still, lh<* month of February has been set aside asn lime to honor the African-Ameri can legacy in the United States. During the month, students and faculty celebrated the contributions and remembered the sacrifices of African- Americans for this country. The Black Student Union kicked off Black History Month with an opening ceremony. It featured guest speakers as well as some campus orators. Mary Francis, President of BSU, warned students that "The state of the Black Student Union will crumble if African American students do not take a role in it." KRS-ONE, lead performer of Boogie Down Productions, spoke to a capacity crowd in the Cougar Den. He pointed out the error in using "color" names like "black" and "white" since none is truly these shades. KRS-ONE also noted how the government uses people's ethnic and religious backgrounds to instigate clashes and keep people fighting against each other instead of encouraging us to work together.
