The Black Student Union, also known as BSU, at NP3 High is open to all students, of every ethnicity and race, to discuss their everyday struggles.

If you want to share your opinions or experiences in regards to race, or if you wish to have a space to express any other culture-related challenges you might be facing, BSU is the club for you.

The club is currently run by seniors Cassidy Tatum, as the club president, and Amaya Mclaurin, as the club vice president. The club meets every Wednesday in E. Jones classroom, B-2, during lunch.

“BSU is a club where everyone, not just people of color, can feel welcome in a safe environment to talk about certain issues they face, whether it be due to their culture or beyond,” Tatum said.

As a club packed with young individuals, their primary target is to create a united and safe environment for the NP3 student body to express their struggles with race or cultural differences.

Thus, the club works to take on the “issue of cultural differences and racism” by openly discussing them with peers, Tatum said. The club provides a space for individuals to openly discuss this sensitive topic and encourages them to face challenges with a positive perspective. BSU hopes to include and unite more members in their efforts to overcome the struggles that accompany race and culture.
