On Friday night, Black Student Alliance hosted Painting with a Purpose in honor of Black History Month. Students were handed out cups of paint and given three different canvas patterns to choose from. The canvas pattern choices were Motown Love, which featured the outlines of two people singing in front of the Detroit skyline; Reaching for Greatness, which featured the outline of a group of individuals reaching upwards; and an outline of Africa.
