ACSA aims to celebrate and raise awareness of African and Caribbean cultures by organizing events that showcase our rich heritage and spark meaningful dialogue. If you would like to join in the celebration, discuss important issues, or simply be a part of a vibrant society on campus, we welcome you and everyone!
Hi! I am a first year in the college; I am currently undecided though I’ll probably be leaning towards a double major in history and either political science or public policy! I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, to parents of Jamaican, Nigerian (specifically Igbo), and Black-American descent. I love to eat, laugh, watch Netflix, read, dance, bake, and cook!
We will have a rehearsal and dress fitting on Saturday, April 4th (details TBA), and the culture show will take place April 18th, 2015 in I-House.
We're excited to have you in UChicago's most diverse fashion show!
What to expect: Good, FREE African and Caribbean Food!, Great African/Caribbean Music, Meet new people (I know you all are tired of the Dining Hall food by now...), Meet current ACSA members and learn what we are all about, Have a good time!
We will be in McCORMICK LOUNGE! To get there, just head over to Reynold's Club, and the first room on your left if you're entering from 57th street. It's past the gold seal and across from Hutchinson Commons and C-Shop.
This exciting new series is made possible thanks to funding by the Norman Waits Harris fund.
