A crowd of over 60 students attended the event. Student Activities Coordinator Christina Haney introduced Assistant Dean Vannessa Green. Green said Black Solidarity Day was started by a Panamanian. Green said she was born in Panama and came to America at age 12. She related to the problem of kids being bullied. She was the only Panamanian in her school. She has been at BC for 13 years. She wants people to come together with a main focus. There should be a commitment to nurture a student. We now have the first black president. Black Solidarity is for everyone but all that strive for improvement. At the event there were dance lessons and entertainment was provided by Conjunto Nueveo Milenio. There were traditional foods such as pernil, yellow rice with pigeon peas and platanos.
