Expressions of Blackness Cultural Week (April 6-9)



This year's “Expressions of Blackness” cultural week theme is “Lift Every Voice.” This theme was chosen because in the light of the heightened political climate surrounding Black Lives Matter, it’s important that we continue to hear and listen to the voices of the oppressed. So, the folks organizing this year's cultural week have dedicated their talents and creativity to ensure that every voice is heard. I hope that these incredible events will spark joy and shed light upon you all as you join us during troubling times.
