The event, the first of its kind by the student organization, will showcase different aspects of African culture, such as dance, music, fashion and food, from different countries represented by the students on campus. There will also be some talks, including one discussing the importance of dance to African culture.
The event will include a keynote talk by Wilmot Collins, the mayor of Helena and the city’s first black mayor since its incorporation. Collins will talk about African excellence and draw from his personal story of coming to the U.S. as a Liberian refugee.
