Africana Center

Choosing Hope

Hello Africana Community,

This semester truly tested our resilience, patience and drive to push through all obstacles and challenges. Missing family, grieving our losses and making hard decisions have dominated our lives. And the limited access to the Africana Center and limited engagement with student organizations made it really difficult to fully experience the power of the Africana community.

The good news is that we chose to abide by the COVID- 19 guidelines so that we can remain healthy and safe - we chose to extend ourselves whenever possible to support each other- we chose to push hard to finish the semester strong. And now, we choose HOPE and OPTIMISM that the news about the COVID-19 vaccines will help us move to a new sense of normalcy.

We send out best wishes that you will indeed finish the semester strong and that you will enjoy your winter break with family and friends. Please stay vigilant in your adherence to safety guidelines, take some time for self-care, to catch up on reading, exercising, and watching Netflix movies. We will be sure to stay in touch with you and look forward to seeing you back on campus in February!     

Be well!
