Celebrating the different cultures that shape Virginia Tech during 1872 weekend
Dr. Menah Pratt-Clarke delivers an original Virginia Tech Sesquicentennial poetry reading at the 1872 celebration. The Council on Virginia Tech History,
in conjunction with the More Than a Fraction Foundation (affiliated
with the African American descendants of Solitude and Smithfield), hosted musicians, dancers, poets, and community members who unveiled historical markers, performed at Moss Arts Center, and gathered at the Merry Oak to commemorate the 150 years of the university.
