The Black Student Union is an organization that brings cultural diversity to the college community through a variety of activities that focus on but are not limited to art, music, literature, and discussion. The purpose of the organization is to provide the college community with the rich ethnic heritage of African, African-American and Caribbean culture; to expose the campus to the many contributions of the black men and women throughout history; and to provide a social group wherein students of various ethnicities may engage in the exchange of ideas relevant to Black heritage.
Everyone is welcome to join BSU regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation.
Above is a picture of the sankofa bird. The concept of the SANKOFA is derived from King Adinkera of the Akan people of West Africa. SANKOFA is expressed in the Akan language as "se wo were fi na wosan kofa a yenki". Literally translated it means "it is not taboo to go back and fetch what you forgot". "Sankofa" teaches us that we must go back to our roots in order to move forward.
