From Martin Luther King, Jr. (GRS’55, Hon.’59) to student groups such as UMOJA to BU’s status as a beacon to African American students from the South in the 1950s, the history of our alma mater’s black community is a complex one worthy of celebration and discussion.
During Alumni Weekend 2011, the BUAA invites alumni to explore Boston University’s black alumni legacy. Events include a welcome reception and dinner, a demonstration of African cooking, classroom discussions of topics such as the business and culture of hip-hop music, and much more.
