A coalition of students of color perform rhythm from their own perspectives during the annual Colors of Rhythm (CoR) showcase. This year’s show featured a range of presentations from taiko drumming to dance and vocal performances. Since its inaugural show in 1997, CoR has given students of color the space to honor and celebrate their cultures. The 21-year-old program also creates an opportunity for the campus community to demonstrate its support.
