Students from the Worthington Atlantic City Campus celebrated Black History Month on Feb. 21 with Turiya S.A. Raheem, adjunct professor at Atlantic Cape.
Turiya presented a film documentary she co-produced with Media Mobilizing out of Philadelphia called “Our Side, the other Atlantic City.” No other history of Atlantic City has been written to shed light on the migration, motivations, achievements and contributions that African American families made in this popular resort prior to casino era, until Turiya’s commentary. Mrs. Raheem’s illuminating reconstruction of the Northside history was very enlightening and will be a valuable contribution to the literature on Atlantic City. In addition to the film, Mrs. Raheem wrote a book titled “Growing Up in the Other Atlantic City Wash’s and the Northside.” The first 20 students with a current ID were awarded a free book autographed by Turiya. There were 26 students in attendance. Continue reading

Sock Drive Provides Comfort for our Neighbors
Vita Stovall helped with distribution and coordination of the college-wide sock drive at the end of the year.
During this past holiday season the Worthington Campus sponsored a sock drive for the homeless. Collection boxes were distributed to all three campus locations. Thanks to the most gracious staff and students, the Atlantic Cape community donated approximately 280 socks to the Atlantic City Rescue Mission on Dec. 19. A special thank you to Cynthia Correa, director, WACC Student Services and Institutional Career Services, for that amazing idea: socks are the most needed item among the homeless, yet the least donated. Thanks again, your compassion enriched so many lives in more ways than you’ll ever know.
