African Diaspora Food Sampler
The African American and African food sampler is held during the month of February to commemorate Black History Month. Normaly we have done the African and the African American food samplers separately but we decided to combine both of them to condense our events. The combination resulted in the African Diaspora Food Sampler, a name we came up with because we wanted to include everyone with African descent who do not currently reside in Africa.
For Colored Girls Movie Screening
On February 7th, MSA held a screening of the black feminist movie intrepretation of the 1975 stage play For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow Is Enuf.
Carver Night of Black Inventors
During this Black History Month we decided to shed light on the few talked about inventions of African Americans. Carver was the highlight of the night being that he has a special connection to Simpson College. The event, on the night of February 12th and was a success, MSA members got to discover many black inventors.

Thediscussion will start on the presept that alot of people and almost everyone has used this word regardless or race.
