February is Black History month, and the Black Student Union (BSU) will be having a variety of events to celebrate.

BSU has already had three events as of the printing of this edition, including their Kick-Off celebration, a demonstration of head wraps, the history of unknown Civil Rights heroes; along with two speakers, a member of the Milwaukee Black Panther Party and Ricardo Wynn, who gave a presentation on what it means to be black and LGBT+,

Future events

BSU will be hosting three more events before the end of the month, including the MLK Celebration on the 22nd, which will include musical performances by UW-Parkside students; the Essence Ball, which will include a presentation by keynote speaker Shebaniah Muhammad focusing on black excellence in education; and the Pan African Conference, where BSU will be going to Minnesota State University to develop leadership skills and networking based on the theme “Wakanda Forever”.

Support your campus organizations in these events and be sure to pick up the next edition of The Ranger News, where we will be covering these events in further detail.
