To foster an awareness of the unique and diverse issues concerning the African-American community, discuss how these issues are evident in history and how they are perpetuated in contemporary society, discuss ways in which an individual can project a positive self-image and not one that is stereotyped in the media, and gain an awareness of the importance of a college education. Any student, regardless of race or ethnicity, is welcome to join this club who has an active interest in learning about Black history and the issues that affect the African-American community.
Students are expected to regularly attend the meetings which are scheduled twice a month, come with a positive attitude, and be willing to share their ideas with regard to programs, community service events, and fundraisers that the club can actively engage in.
Students must also maintain a 2.0 GPA to remain active in the club.
