Spotted: Timeka Toussaint
Place of Origin: New York, New York
Major: Government
Involvement on Campus: President of Committee on Diversity Affairs, Leader in Black Organization of Students, and President of Afro Caribbean Club.
Her Whereabouts: Timeka will be attending Black Organization of Student’s Cultural Expressions on February 25th, and Afro Caribbean Club’s The Cliques Party February 18th. During the spring Timeka can be seen at Afro Caribbean Club’s J’ouvert and the Lawrence International Cabaret.
Overheard discussing Black History Month: According to Timeka, Black History Month is important because it is a time that lets people reflect on the past as well as the future. For Timeka, Black History Month gives her the ability to learn and teach others about the past, present, and future of black history. For this Black History Month Timeka wants to focus on those who are currently making changes in the world. For the Lawrence Community, Black History Month allows for us all to be educators and students when it comes to learning about individuals and movements such as Civil Rights, Martin Luther King, and Nelson Mandela. She was last heard saying, “I love the fact that some individuals are learning to celebrate people’s differences instead of using differences to classify people into categories.”
