Every year the Mount Holyoke African and Caribbean Students Association (MHACASA) has an event called African-Caribbean Day (AC Day) which is used to sensitise the college community and general public on African and Caribbean culture, issues, etc. These are videos that were shown at AC Day 2006 and 2007 respectively. The main topic covered in the first video: explaining the phenomenon of African and Caribbean women’s hair. The second video deals with the fact that Africa is a CONTINENT, not a country, and also some variations in communication through the English language.
