Black History Month at UNG

[Music plays]

(UNG: University of North Georgia)

(UNG honors Black History Month)

Alexis Carter: (Assistant Director of Multicultural Student Affairs)

The Hip-Hop as a Healing Practice symposium is important to UNG's campus because we've never had an event like this before. So we think it's important to bring it to campus to bring more awareness to the issues that reside within hip-hop but also how we can use those same issues or topics to explore ways of healing.

Beth Sales: (Director of art galleries) Michi Meko is dealing with a lot of important concepts in his paintings. And he's dealing with these concepts while also creating beautiful surfaces filled with materials that are embedded with nostalgia and a real history.

Michi Meko: (artist) It's important for me to sort of spread my message and hopefully inspire another student. Like when I was a student, there were artists who came and visited my studio or visited my college campus so I think that those kind of things are important.

Meko: It's specific to New Orleans and the thinking behind it is a message for like healing or a message to get up or to rise from the ruin.
