Shippensburg University’s African Student Association (ASA) hosted a Journey Back to the Motherland in the Ceddia Union Building’s Multipurpose Room Saturday evening, at which students celebrated African cultures through food, dance, poetry and informative presentations.
After enjoying some authentic cuisine, students watched African dancers perform on stage. Some students were invited on stage to dance with the professionals.
Students presented facts on Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ivory Coast, Nigeria and Ghana before a student read her personal poem “The Average Black Girl.”
