On Thursday, March 5th, James Madison Academic Campus held the first black history program titled “Black Lives Matter”. This year’s program highlighted some of the rich and undeniably powerful African American cultural traditions while paying homage to many African American legends. The program featured artistic acts from various students and staff of JMAC. The acts included poetry and song; drumming, dancing and oratory speaking . In addition to the hard work and talent showcases of both, the staff and students of JMAC, the program also featured two Guest speakers mostly known for their community activists work and youth engagement, Muhibb Dyer and Ntuumba. All in all, the program was a powerful and distinguished display of the deeply rooted struggles and progress of the African American race.
