Past, present and future generations of black people are represented in this month’s variety of gatherings celebrating Black History Month.

Student Government Association (SGA) President Maame Mensah tells The Equinox that the Black Student Union (BSU) will be hosting a lot of different events, beginning with a “discussion about love” on Feb. 13.

She says to look out for an event called “Make Love Makes Sense.”

“It’s going to be around February since, you know, Valentine’s Day is coming up. Black Student Union is also hosting a lot of different events, too. We’re having an organization feud, which is basically like “Family Feud” but organization vs. organization. It’s going to be really fun,” she said.

The SGA put together several events for this February. Some of which include (but are not limited to) the empowerment of people of color:

“On the 27th,  we will have a mixer just so we can fully introduce Black Student Union to the student body  because this is the first semester that it’s on campus,” Mensah says. “Please come by, the more the merrier.”

The SGA is hard at work bringing these events to our campus, so do your best to drop by and show your support!
