Annual Unity Dinner on Sunday, November 10, 2013

The Black Student Union is hosting the annual Unity Dinner on Sunday, November 10 from 6:00-9:00pm at the McNamara Alumni Center-Memorial Hall. This dinner promotes service, leadership, diversity, and cultural awareness. This year's theme is "Embracing Blackness in All Its Forms: Foundations for Uplift." Professor Nekima Levy-Pounds and Regent Abdul Omari will be speaking.

Unity Dinner provides the space for students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community leaders to come together to network, enjoy dynamic speakers and performances, and leave with inspiration to contribute to the campus and community.
When creating this year's theme, they considered greatly the various events this past year that have affected the African-American community on different levels. From the trial of George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin to the Supreme Court decision on the Voting Rights Act to most recently the federal government shutdown, our community has faced many uncomfortable truths regarding our safety, security, and stability within this nation. We want Unity Dinner to be a space where we address these issues and inspire our generation of young people to contribute to our community's uplift from their perspective using their talents.
