BLSA celebrates Black History Month with numerous events
In honor of Black History Month, Campbell Law School’s chapter of the Black Law Student Association (BLSA) will host a number of events throughout the month of February.
Starting Feb. 1, students are encouraged to take a walk through history by visiting BLSA’s Black Voices in Law display in front of the Commons, which will be up all month long.
From 4 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 2, BLSA will host the “Black History Month Kickoff Cookout” at Essary Place. The event will include “food, fun and culture! Pop in and out as we take it back to our roots with African drumming as well as embracing cookout culture,” organizers said.
Ever wanted to learn how to play Spades? You can on Feb. 7 during lunch in the Commons. The event will include lessons on the game of Spades and discussions surrounding the history and cultural significance of the game.
The “Black Power Panel” event will be held on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14. Attendees will have the opportunity to “hear and grow from influential black figures in the community and discuss the importance of leaning into blackness and occupying predominantly white spaces.”
Finally, on Feb. 21, students are invited to “Soul Food Tuesday” for a good southern lunch and fellowship to wrap up Black History Month.
