The smell of barbeque chicken and the pounding of Reggae filled the air as students danced at FAU’s annual Mountain Pop BBQ.

The event was meant to promote the FAU’s Black Student Union, Caribbean Student Association, Konbit Kreyol, Association of Latin American Students, National Council of Negro Women and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People,  according to FAU NCNW president Felicia Falden.

The BBQ  was held at the BBQ pit from 6 to 11 p.m. on Sept. 13.

“Everyone is invited to come; we expect all cultures like people of Haitian, African American, and Hispanic backgrounds to come. This event is to let everyone know that these organizations are out here.” said Falden.

Senior Shamicka Lynch said “I came to the BBQ tonight to learn more about the organizations that are doing things for the minority communities,” said senior Shamicka Lynch, “and for the free food!”
