February 17, 2020

Michigan State University’s Black Student Alliance, or BSA, is hosting a Black Revolt Week this week, Feb. 17 to 21, to encourage students of color to show their black spirit.

BSA is a student organization that promoted a 10-point plan for diversity, equity and inclusion to decrease the prevalence of racist incidents on campus.

Monday, Feb. 17

BSA will host a Q&A Mob with the theme “When One Stand, All Stand.” The event will be held at the Broad College of Business in room N130 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Students are encouraged to wear their “I am a Black MSU Student” shirts to celebrate their Black Pride Day.

Tuesday, Feb. 18

Students will come dressed in their 90s apparel and participate in a community forum entitled “How to be an Activist.” 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in Wells Hall B122

Wednesday, Feb. 19

BSA will host a “Leave Your Mark” event by painting The Rock at 5 p.m. The theme is Class Color Day. Freshmen will wear green, sophomores will wear red, juniors will wear yellow and seniors will wear black.

Thursday, Feb. 20

Students are encouraged to wear their best pajamas to an impromptu sign-making session at the Brody Grotto from 7-9 p.m. BSA’s goal is to have students learn how to make a statement through signage.

Friday, Feb. 21

The final day will consist of a commemoration march beginning at the CATA bus station from 1-2 p.m. Students, dressed in all black, will spread the message “Still We Rise” in remembrance of the past incidents of racial bias.
