A Taste of Black History held at Potomac State

In celebration of Black History Month, the Black Student Alliance Club (BSA) at Potomac State College (PSC) of West Virginia University (WVU) hosted “A Taste of Black History” event which included a tribute to the food, history, culture, and art contributions of African Americans throughout history.  WVU Vice president and head of the Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion David Fryson, Esq. (far right front) and Pastor Alfred Deas (next to Fryson) with the Metropolitan AME Church in Cumberland, Md. served as guest speakers.  Other contributors include (l-r, front): PSC Visiting Instructor Yelena Meadows, who also serves as a co-advisor to the BSA Club; BSA Club President Brandon Washington; PSC Employee and BSA co-advisor Shannon Meek.  Back row (l-r):  Antar Evans, past-president of BSA; PSC Interim Dean of Academic Affairs Edem Tetteh; Joshua Dorsey, a WVU doctoral candidate; and Campus President Leonard Colelli.

A quote by the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. summed up the tone of the evening, “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
