Harambeé House - Gumbo Yearbook Archives

The first on-campus meeting space for black students, the Harambeé House, was first established in 1972. 

Welcome back to the Cine Files, with DJ Scoundrel and DJ Prismo. This week we wanted to honor Black History Month by featuring films with African American actors, composers and more. Our playlist this week has a variety of different music, paying homage to African American history from the post-abolition movement to the Civil Rights era to the birth of hip-hop to today.

Tune back in next Thursday from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. for more film scores and soundtracks on KLSU.
