Let’s Reflect: Mass Comm Week 2017

By: Marquis Butler Mass Communications week was by far the best part of my spring semester. The highlight of the week was the panel that took place on Monday. Multiple alumni came back to Lincoln and gave their experience of their real life view post Lincoln hosted by Nicole Webb. I was very inspired by people like Kofi and Kiara Jackson who are in the entertainment field in which I would like to get into. As many people in my life know I want to be an Actor and getting the advice of how their journey is going in the real world has shown me that I am following the right foot steps and action plans. Moving forward I would love to come back and speak of my view to the rest of the current students at Lincoln. Another thing I took from the panel is building relationships with the ...

A Turnt Up Turn Out

Kendall Gilbert Recently I hosted my first event by myself as Mr. Lincoln called "Good Fits." The premise of the event was to show freshman males when, where, and how to wear different kinds of dress clothes. It was a fashion expo and a mixer at the same time. I had a runway of models consisting of other male leaders on campus and served pizza and other refreshments. “It was amazing! I wish more people showed up because it was so great!" - Lincoln University senior, Charles “Chuck” Strothers The event turned from just being a forum to something much bigger. When I opened up the floor for questions, the freshman that attended were craving for information. Our discussions about clothing turned into steps and plans to improve male leadership on campus and setting up the legacy Li...

It’s Coronation Season!

By Kendall Gilbert It is homecoming season for many colleges and universities. As a result, of that most weeks start off with a wondrous event called coronation. Coronation is the crowning ceremony of the campus’ King and Queen. Every coronation is different. Some people fly from the ceiling, while others come in on white horses and the rest just get a sparkling, gem encrusted crown. With having the pleasure to serve as Mister Lincoln University for Lincoln University of PA, I have gotten to go to many coronations, and even had one of my own. My coronation was spectacular! We had performers dance, sing and even sign on the stage. Every campus organization had their king and queen grace the stage. Our family and friends came from Georgia, North Carolina, New York, New Jersey, Wash...

Editor of The Lincolnian Pens Letter to Michael Brown

The following letter is an excerpt from The Lincolnian's editor, Nicole Webb's, journalism blog entitled Testaments of a Journalism Major. Webb is a graduating senior at The Lincoln University, double majoring in Broadcast and Print Journalism. You can view this letter and her other posts by visiting testamentsofajournalismmajor.blogspot.com. Dear Michael, You don't know me and I quite frankly cannot say that I know of who you are outside of these recent headlines. From what I've read you were a "gentle giant;" you had just graduated from high school and just like so many of our young Black men, you had the world ahead of you...until the stray of a bullet fatally took that future away.  Michael, I cannot say that I understand what it feels like to be a Black man in...

LU alum Eric Webb discusses novel tonight on radio show

By Veronica Carr For The Lincolnian "Black men are missing, and no one is asking questions, not even the government." This one line best sums up Eric Webb's newest novel titled "The Garvey Protocol," which Webb will discuss on 1Essence Radio at 7 o'clock tonight. To listen show streamed live, go here. The book is fiction but draws on real events, such as the Atlanta child murders and America's War on Drugs. In his book, Webb poses the question of whether these events were a direct attack on the black community, specifically on black men. On the radio show, Webb said he will discuss his writing career and his journey as a writer in the hopes of inspiring others. Webb hopes that by reading his book, readers will learn a valuable lesson. "I hope that readers will become...
