CSI Celebrates Black Heritage

October 09, 2012

Students, Faculty and Staff join together under the CSI banner for the 2012 Black Heritage Parade.

Students, faculty members, staff, and administrators from the College of Staten Island recently took part in the Staten Island Black Heritage Family Day, which included a Kick-Off Ceremony, a Peoples’ Parade, and the We Are Family Festival in Tappen Park.

CSI Vice President for Student Affairs Dr. A. Ramona Brown commented “The Black Heritage Day Parade was a wonderful event that brought Staten Islanders together to celebrate the Black community. CSI students, faculty, and staff united together under the CSI banner clearly demonstrating their pride and commitment to the principles of diversity, inclusion, and excellence, all of which represent an integral part of the College’s Strategic Plan: Many Voices, One Vision.”

Students from the C-Step program, Student Government, and the Liberty Partnerships Program (LPP) carried the College’s banner along the 1.1-mile parade route that extended from Vanderbilt Avenue to Targee Street.

Vice President Brown summed up the overall feeling of the event, noting that “It was a pleasure to share this day with our CSI volunteers, and a close-knit community of active and concerned citizens to enhance the goals for their own community and communities across Staten Island.“
