Ebonie Riley is a political science major and president of the Africana Studies Council of Majors at UMBC.
Last week the UMBC Dept. of Africana Studies and Africana Studies Council of Majors hosted “Empowering Young Americans: A Conversation with Congressman Cummings” on campus. Congressman Cummings enriched the audience with several messages, telling students that it is our time to pave the way for future generations and that we must surround ourselves with positive people who will allow us to be who we are, challenge us and help us dream big. Thanks to everyone who made this event such a success!
