Black Student Union plans two-day cultural festival in April

This year, SUNY Fredonia’s Black Student Union (BSU) is focusing on restoration and celebration.

“We want to restore this group to the powerful, meaningful organization it once was, and we want to celebrate our cultures and our increasing presence on this campus,” said BSU President Jillian Hanesworth. With that in mind, she and the rest of the BSU executive board (Rachael James, Jakera Cooper, Daniela Rodriguez, Margaret Gonzolez, Tamika Whittick, Emmanuel Guzman, Tieliek Curry, Antonio Regulier and Courtney Stewart) decided to try something new this year — a cultural festival that would combine two of the group’s most popular spring events: the People of Color Concerns Conference and the annual spring concert/fashion show. They are inviting current BSU members, BSU alumni, and even prospective and incoming students to come together on campus for the April 4 and 5 festival and celebration.

“This isn’t a conference. That’s what makes it different from anything we’ve done before,” Hanesworth explained. “It really is just an opportunity to connect our general body with BSU alumni, and showcase what we have to offer here at Fredonia.”

Are you interested in attending? To register, email Co-chair Daniela Rodriguez at rodr1200@fredonia.edu. The BSU looks forward to sharing this fun-filled weekend with you!
