Pi Chapter Xinos and Kudos Create Black History Video


On Saturday, February 12th the Trenton Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. presented their annual Black History program virtually. The Pi Chapter Xinos and Kudos submitted a video entitled,” Our Words Need to Be Heard.” All Pi Xinos and Kudos participated, and we hear their voices as they recite the poem that is the focus of the video. The poem was written by Xinos member Tiana Smith. The members did all the voice overs. The video was directed and edited by Pi Xinos members Makenzie Ivey and Tiana Smith who selected all the still photos and music that were used in the video. Makenzie Ivey also sang, Make Them Hear You, from the theater production of Ragtime. It is an unforgettable song by Brian Stokes Mitchell.
