SPRINGFIELD— LLCC went back in time with music for throwback Thursday, Feb. 14, in the A.Lincoln Commons.

The Evolution of Music/Throwback Thursday was an event co-sponsored by the African-American History Month Committee and LLCC’s Black Student Union. The event was part of LLCC’s African-American History month series titled “Still: We Rise as the Journey Continues”.

There was a large variety of music being played, and voter registration tables were also set up for students.

“We are here to help and get people registered to vote provided by the BSU.” academic adviser Laurie Clemons said.

While music was playing, students got to enjoy food and drinks including pizza, cupcakes and water. DJ Jamel Broomfield was playing all genres.

Students also received goodies for Valentine’s Day as well as fruit cups and whipped cream. There were also materials available to make valentines.

Business Professor and BSU adviser Paul Hudson said the event helped “to bring awareness in terms of music and to bring the students (together) to socialize and celebrate African history.”
