VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Some Valdosta State students are a little more knowledgeable about black history tonight.

 The VSU business college held a black history exhibit today.Letters from influential African Americans were on display. Former Superintendent of Valdosta Schools Sam Allen was the keynote speaker.

"As you look back at history, and as you look at where blacks have evolved from over the years, we look at all the contributions that they've made and we look back and we look back and we say 'they were contributors of where we are now'," lamented Allen. "And you know that we are all cut out of the same cloth."

Around 25 students attended the event.
