Rice's Black Student Association (BSA) hosted Soul Night, its annual dinner and cultural show, on March 10 in Rice Memorial Center's Grand Hall.
The theme for this year's show was "Black is ___________: What Does Black Mean To You?" The event featured a variety of entertainment from student performers, including African- and Caribbean-themed dances, poetry, artwork and an assortment of musical selections.
Soul Night is the organization's largest fundraiser and enables BSA members to immerse themselves in the Houston community culture and identity and increase the awareness and appreciation for cultural diversity.
