Black History Month Celebrations Begin With Soul Food Buffet

The Soul Food Buffet was something that everyone needed. Not only was it a reminder of the diverse culture we have
here at IVCC, but it was a day that students could just cut loose, kick back, eat food and listen to the sweet tunes of the Charles Walker Band.

It would be difficult to find a better way to kick off Black History Month. The fried chicken was on point; the mac and cheese was creamy and delicious; there was tea that matched the sweetness of the licks the band was playing.

It was hard to decide whether a person should sit down and enjoy this godly
food, or stand up and dance to the music.

Why not both? The food was like everything you would want at a wholesome family
get-together.

It felt like a second Thanksgiving, with better music. Not to mention the service! Everyone needs to give a shout out to the people
that cooked that delicious bountiful banquet. Without the food service the whole thing wouldn’t have come together so
beautifully.

The entire experience can be summed up by how it would feel if Bourbon Street, New Orleans came to IVCC for a time. To put it bluntly, if you missed this celebration, you missed out big time, but like Chicago Cubs fans say, “There’s always next year.”
