Africans Friends Relatives and Others (AFRO Club)

We exist for every student on campus. We exist to educate those who know very little of black heritage, and to entertain those who have a thriving appreciation of it. We exist to celebrate the African continent, and every reverberation of its art and culture around the world. From the tribesman on the Kenyan plains, to the child of immigrants living in Paris to the black intellectual from upstate New York, we exist to amplify their unique story. We exist to celebrate the uniqueness of black art and culture, and to emphasize its place in the harmony of the human melody.
