First thing Monday morning, on a cold second day of February, Onyx co-heads Matt Trammell and Taylor Parker kicked off Black History Month for the community. The celebration at Milton is full: visiting artists, films, assemblies, dining and dancing to a live Reggae band, and an Onyx hosted Chapel are among the events on the calendar. February is alive with culture, learning and fun. The kickoff assembly set the tone. Matt Trammell began with his thoughtful reflection about the ways Milton cultivates thought and learning about the African American experience, and the ways the community should still grow. An elegant, warm and inspirational rendition of Lift Every Voice followed, sung by Grant Jones, Lami Olatunji and Laitan Oladipo. Members of Onyx then highlighted the extensive and interesting series of events that will surround those of us lucky enough to be on campus for Black History Month at Milton.
