To help celebrate Black History Month, the Wilbur N. Daniel African American Cultural Center at APSU has formed a list of activities throughout February. Also, the APSU cafeteria served “soul food” from February 2-8. Some of the food served throughout the week included fried catfish, sweet potato fries, turnip greens, fried okra, barbecued chicken and country steak.

“The food served this week was delicious,” said Kenny Hanley, a sophomore computer science major. “I really liked that they chose to honor a unique culture that is sometimes overlooked or taken for granted.”

Thursday, Feb. 13: Cumbia Lecture and Dance
