In February, African/Black Heritage is recognized on the TAMUK campus. As part of this commemoration, the palm trees along University Blvd have been decorated with the colors of the Pan African flag by members of the following organizations: International Student Organization, Kappa Delta Chi, Sigma Lambda Beta, & Student Government Organization in collaboration with the TAMUK Multicultural Heritage Committee.
The Pan-African flag COLORS represent:
RED: the blood that unites all people of Black African ancestry, & that has been shed for liberation;
BLACK: black people whose existence as a nation, though not a nation-state, is affirmed by the existence of the flag;
GREEN: the abundant natural wealth of Africa.
