One of the (many) things I love about Duke’s campus is the main quad. As soon as the weather turns warm and sunny, it bursts into a bustle of frisbee throwing, music blasting, and sun-soaking. These things are typical… but I’ve learned to always expect the unexpected out on the quad. Last Friday, while strolling around Springternational (an annual festival celebrating international cultures), all of a sudden a Michael Jackson started blasting over a loud speaker and a huge crowd of women burst into a flash mob!
It turns out that the flash mob was organized for an incredible cause. In Muhuru Bay, Kenya, to prove that they can be heard and seen in public, some female WISER students staged a flash mob in the city center. In response to their bravery, Baldwin Scholars and WISER at Duke staged a women’s flash mob too. The flash mob video is being sent back to the WISER girls for support.
