A Celebration of Arts, Culture and Community is scheduled to be held on Thursday, February 23rd from 1-2:30 pm in Student Resource Center (SRC) 204 on Main campus, said Carol Ash, event co-chair.

There will be a music performance from students, Rhea Fayne and NormaJean Rogers, she said.

Students, Shakir Farid and Ibrahim Abdallah, are scheduled to perform spoken word poetry and the CNM African dance class is scheduled to perform a dance piece, Ash said.

There will be light refreshments and door prizes for students, she said, students may be shocked when they find out what the door prizes are.

“This is an opportunity to celebrate the contributions of African American’s, to the CNM community and to the Albuquerque community as well as celebrate the talents and the skills of our students right here on our campus,” Ash said.

It is everyone’s responsibility to support our community, Ash said.

“I think it’s important to recognize diversity at every level,” she said, “Great things happen when people all come together and work together as one.”

The event co-chairs are Carol Ash and Rebecca Ratchford and the event is sponsored by the Executive Council of Students, Connect Services and the CNM Foundation.
