The office of Student Diversity and Inclusion at Texas State University hosted a black history celebration on Thursday February 5th.
“Mama’s Kitchen” brought many of the faculty, students and staff together to share a meal in celebration. The event was held in the LBJ Student Center and was open to anyone at Texas State. Student Diversity and Inclusion representatives wanted this event to give those who attended a ‘taste of home.’
Graduate assistant Stephany Lopez said one way to bring people together is food. “If you ever have an event with food, it’s going to bring people together. It’s going to make the conversation a lot easier to start off. Food really just provides an opportunity for people to come together and put those walls and those guards down and have an open and honest conversation with one another.”
The celebration included a PowerPoint shown with black history month quizzes and ‘did you know’ facts. The event continued until all the food was completely gone.
