African American SymposiumApril 15, 2012
Cornell College’s 2012 African American Symposium on April 23rd will have more of an international theme this year. Typically the symposium discusses African influences in America due to slavery. But this year, the symposium will extend our knowledge beyond America, looking at where else in the world African roots lie. On each board, there will be at least one significant person or event that was heavily influenced by people of African descent around the world, throughout time. Additionally, international hip-hop music will be played to show the modernized impact of African American culture through music.
