The University of Olivet Welcomes Princess Castleberry for Black History Month

Black History Month Speaker- Princess Castleberry

In honor of Black History Month, Dr. Kordilia Noble invited Princess Castleberry to come share her knowledge of mindfulness and Black wealth-building for Olivet students and soon-to-be college graduates. On Feb. 8, Castleberry gave her powerful message in the new Cutler Student Center.


Noble explained why she wanted Castleberry to come speak, “Princess Castleberry is a Global Speaker and Wellness and Risk Management Consultant who creates learning experiences for organizations that want to protect their people, purpose, and profits by making wellness actionable,” said Noble. The theme for the presentation was going P.R.O; mindfulness, wealth creation and reframing the scarcity mindset. She started with the history of African Americans and discussed how that history does not shape us today and how she changed her mind set. She then dove into the different money mindsets, which included; money avoidance, money worship, money status and money vigilance. 


Sophomore Tyson Carter explains what he gathered from attending this event, “What I took out of it is everything that happened in the community beforehand and how that doesn't really shape us. We can always look back on it but not to let that anger influence our future, we can always shape our own life,” said Carter.


The campus is hosting more events for the remainder of this month. “These events are important at The University of Olivet because it inspires not only me, but all black people to be the change. This is not because we are different, but because we are unique and powerful,” said senior Anthony Brown. These will include H.A.S.S.A teaching hustle and ballroom dancing on Feb. 15 from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the bottom of the Kirk Center. BSU will also present a guest speaker Dr. Nolana Nobles on Feb. 28 from 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. in the CSC community room. To find out more please refer to the UO App as well as school emails.
