Saint Augustine's College Celebrates Black History Month

Feb. 28, 2012

St. Aug's Division of Liberal Arts and Education hosted a Black History program on February 23 in the auditorium of Seby Jones. The program consisted of a multi-media skit, "Freedom's Legacy," a panel discussion and a question and answer session.

The Freedom's Legacy skit was performed on the premise of an elderly man teaching his granddaughter about the plight for equality amongst African-Americans. During the skit, the elderly man played by Dante Sellers, senior in Film and Theater, covered not only the Civil Rights movement but also slavery and Egyptians.

"This play helped the audience understand the various figures that fought for our freedom," stated Sellers. "We have to continue working to gain freedom because freedom is not guaranteed, it's all up to us."
