Black Student Union (BSU)

  • In recognition that group solidarity and group consciousness are important for the improvement of all people of Black African Ancestry,

  • In recognition that there is a need to create a foundation on which people of Black African Ancestry can create and sustain traditions unique to them,

  • In recognition that Williams and other institutions have historically been inadequate in addressing the social and cultural needs and issues important to people of Black African Ancestry,

  • We the students of Black African Ancestry at Williams, find the need for the establishment of a Black Student Union.
