“Let’s Talk” Black History Program Held at NSU

NSU’s Chapter of the NAACP and Alpha Omicron Pi Chapter held one of the more unique and imaginative Black History Month programs at the university’s Friedman Student Union Wednesday. February 23.

The program consisted of an eclectic mix of community and student leaders who each took turns answering questions from moderators and NSU students William Roberson and Meshelle Morgan. Members of the audience also asked questions of the panel. The questions ranged from the meaning of Black History to threats to academic freedom.

The panel consisted of Natchitoches Mayor Ronnie Williams, longtime civic leader Mr. Edward Ward, Jr, Dr. Michael Snowden, NSU NAACP Chapter President Darrin Nixon, Alpha Omicron Pi Chapter President Kaitlyn Gaines and SGA Senator Bailey Willis. The group had a diverse mix of ages, background and experience that made the program all the more interesting. The program was well done and the young people that put it together were an impressive group. The Natchitoches Parish Journal wishes you all the best as you complete your studies and go out into the world. Go do good stuff and make us proud!
