August 24, 2015 - CultureFest Table - Brother Alton Colvin and Marlon Malone prepared a table about the nation of Ghana, which displayed the Ghanaian Flag, some Ghanaian currency (the Cedi) and authentic Kente cloth, examples of the Twi Language, along with information about Ghanaian culture. The chapter's President, Alton Colvin, said that the Sigmas selected Ghana as its table's theme because that nation's first President, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, was a member of Phi Beta Sigma and because the Fraternity recently had a new school built in Okrase, Ghana. The Sigma's table also had information about Adinkra symbols, which could be found in the displayed shirts from Ghana, as well as a bowl carved by a Ghanaian made from calabash (a type of gourd). Adinkra refers to decorative symbols used in Ghanaian art that capture the essence of a Ghanaian Proverb.
