The members of the Pan Africa club are: Crystal Nwabeke, Kingsley Nwabeke, Etoile Iboni, Eden Girma, Liya Girma, Nailah White, Bene Metoho-Eke, Ricardo Carter, Nyankor Angoi, Agum Ring, Ayen Angoi, Maryanne Onyedinma, Caleb Williams, Caleb Ajakaiye, Jillian Jackson, Haymanote Gilliland, Mya’ Dunn, Alexis lkemba, A’cya Narcisse, Osarobo Obasuyi, Saadia Prevost, and Jeremiah Williams.
Maria Rodriguez is the club moderator, and she is proud of the group’s leadership in putting on today’s assembly.
“The students worked super hard to create a diverse and authentic assembly that showcased a wide range of African American perspectives. Pan Africa’s goal was to share their culture and educate the student body on contributions by African Americans to our nation. They did a fantastic job,” said Ms. Rodriguez.
