University at Buffalo (UB) Campus Minister, Marchon Hamilton II was awarded the Imani Faith Award at the Annual Kwanzaa Celebration hosted by the UB Black Student Union. During the night of celebration, performance and speakers the Black Student Union awarded him for his commitment and dedication to mentoring minority males through Guy Talk, a mentorship program designed to promote the educational advancement as well as life and social skill development for minority males. “Marchon is a great man and a prime example of someone who represents faith; because he shares it, and wants to teach people that they can do amazing things if they have faith in themselves too.”, says Deon Walker a University at Buffalo Pre-Law Student and member of Guy Talk.
Imani the last day of Kwanzaa means Faith, which is to believe with all our heart in our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders and the righteousness of our struggle. The Black Student Union originally started in 1967, hosts the Pre-Kwanzaa celebration on an annual basis to bring awareness of the importance of Kwanza to the UB community and takes this opportunity annually to honor students, faculty and community members who have made a significant contribution to African Diaspora and history. Guy talk is open to minority male college students or recent graduates in the Buffalo community and encourages participation from anyone interested.
