Black Empowerment Week

Hop on board the soul train, take a trip to Amateur Night at the Apollo, enjoy a Black History-themed Jeopardy game, and much more as BSU presents Black Empowerment Week.

Black Student Union (BSU) will kick off Black Empowerment Week this weekend on the PLV Campus!

On Saturday, March 3, BSU and 808’s present the Soul Train dance party in the Pace Perk Cafe. Put on your 70s, 80s, or 90s clothing and get ready to bust a move to music from different decades and original videos from the show Soul Train.

On March 4, keep the family dinners alive as BSU hosts a traditional Sunday Night Dinner in Butcher Suite, catered by Sweet Potatoes restaurant in New Rochelle. For just $5 at the door, enjoy the traditional foods served during Sunday dinners in African-American households.

Who is Rosa Parks? That’s the answer, not the question. Stop by Be Thankful for Your Rights, the Black History-themed Jeopardy Game being held on March 5 in Gottesman. Gift card prizes awarded to first, second and third place.

On Tuesday, March 6, join BSU in an open discussion about love and relationships in college at Black Love in Gottesman. Guest speakers include Keirsten and Henry Wanamaker.
