“Something Lost But Not Forgotten” celebrates Black History Month at Bay Path
In honor of Black History Month every February for the past three years, Bay Path College honors a distinct chapter of African American culture. The name of this event is, “Something Lost But Not Forgotten.” With spoken word, poetry, singing, and dancing, the participants celebrate and commemorate what we all have gained through our collective histories. The night’s festivities will take place on Thursday, February 20, at 8 p.m. in the Blake Student Commons.
Each year, a specific regional cuisine is highlighted; the founder of this event, Nani King ’14, said that without giving away the surprise offerings, this year the food will come from the region of South Africa. “I love seeing the audience reaction once I announce what food will be served,” she added.
King said of her event, “I created this show three years ago so we as a human race can celebrate the progress across races, the progression of interactions between races, and most importantly to acknowledge the struggles African Americans have faced from in the past as well the present.”
Noted spoken word artist L. Nunuu will perform, and the event will also honor the contributions to American music by the late Don Cornelius, creator of the influential program, “Soul Train.”
This evening’s celebration is free and open to the public. All are welcome.
The spring Kaleidoscope series is underwritten in part by PeoplesBank, which supports Bay Path College’s commitment to providing cultural and educational enrichment to the communities we serve.
