UH's Black community Any team ha a better chance of winning when they work together as one. The members of the Black Student Union (BSU) understood this idea thoroughly, and each of the members appreciated the value of teamwork. Born in the spring of 1971, the BSU was established as an active voice and unity base for African-Americans on campus who wished to celebrate their heritage. The BSU expressed its objectives through a number of programs such as the annual Food and Culture Night, which featured cuisine and entertainment from the African heritage. Other activities included the annual Date Auction, self- defense instruction, and many volunteer efforts, such as March of Dimes, Houston Blood Bank, and a Bastion Elementary tutoring program. There were many advantages to being 1 love watching people enjoy our programs as the members real ize their leadership potential." - Tonya Conway "fej SINGLE FILE BSU members lined up to get food at the Food and Culture Night.

"BSU has brought me closer to other black organizations on campus by co-sponsoring events." One of BSUs biggest events took place in a week-long celebration of Black history. It included a unity workshop and a one-man play entitled, "Can I Speak For You, Brother?" The week ended with an arts festival depicting different aspects of the African-American culture as well as the entertaining Apollo Night. In a city where the population was so diverse, BSU helped ensure that the Black students of UH would not get lost in the crowd, and that their heritage and contribution to society would not be forgotten. Donicd G. Beckett HOW MUCH IS THAT? Sophomore biology major Erica Lewis and sophomore education major Priscilla Pack counted their money to make a bid at the annual date auction.
