Danielle Milton, biochemistry.

“My mom used to have us sit down and read books by black authors, over time it’s helped me get in touch with my inner black.”

Simone Gideon, psychology.

“When we celebrate, we go to my grandma’s church, they have a play. My mom really cooks. Chicken, collard greens, and cornbread. We have a group called the Sisters of Tomorrow, we do traditional dances for usually Kwanzaa, but we also celebrate in February.” 

Jackie Broussard, communications.

“It’s a time of reflection.”
