The HPU spring Club Carnival transformed Fort
Street mall into a day-long festival of talk and laughter
on Jan. 30. The carnival began at 10 a.m. and featured booths
from 56 HPU clubs and organizations as well as a few community
organizations. The different groups set up their booths early
in the day, with some students even up with the sun and braving
the rain to stand in line at the Student Life office to get
choice spots on the Mall.
To those who are unfamiliar with Black History,
February is just another month of the year; however, for
the African-American community, February is a reminder and
celebration of struggles and accomplishments.
What began as an ordinary class project, turned
into an intense lesson in grass roots, community politics
for five students who pressed local political systems to
see if they could improve the welfare of the HPU community.
