ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. — In honor of Black History Month, St. Bonaventure’s Black Student Union (BSU) will present a Black History Month Celebration Wednesday, Feb. 15, at 5 p.m. in the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts.
The event will feature skits, a fashion show, and performances by the SBU Step Team and regional rap group Charles Fredrick and a Family of Notes.
The Step Team hopes to “pay tribute to a culture that so many people are proud of,” Step Team captain Tiffany Nunez said. “We want to show that through all the struggle, a light will shine and great things have come from it.”
The BSU has brought Charles Fredrick and a Family of Notes back to campus following a fabulous show at its Martin Luther King Jr. celebration Jan. 18.
Fredrick, also known as C-Note on stage, wrote poetry throughout his childhood and, at age 17, he began putting those poems to music. Along with fellow trio members Rob Notes and Michael Strong, Fredrick will perform some of this musical poetry Wednesday night.
The Black Student Union and Damietta Diversity Center welcome the Bonaventure community and the public to join in this cultural celebration. Admission is $3.
