The annual Colors of Rhythm performance in Finney Chapel provides a forum for student artists of color to showcase cultural dance, music, and poetic forms not typically discussed or offered in academic curricula.
The 20th year of this spring event brought together performances by the African Students Association, the Chinese Student Association’s Wushu Team, the Filipinx American Students Association Band, In Solidarity, Movimiento, OSlam, OC Taiko, the South Asian Students Association, and Umoja. Colors of Rhythm is an important moment for marginalized groups to develop and articulate their voices, and for majority groups to demonstrate support and reflect their relative privilege.
