SANKOFA: The BSU Brings Soul to Black History Month
Sankofa will sponsor a series of events in honor of Black History Month. “There is a movement occurring on this campus right as we speak,” said President Sade Jones.
“It is a movement that represents true diversity; the education about, respect for, and connecting to as well as tolerance of our people on this campus. S.O.U.L. Week is just another way we provide HWS students with the opportunity to jump on board this movement while having fun. As president of SANKOFA: The BSU, I invite you to come learn about our people….your people through play!”
