Black Student Union Launches “WE ARE BLACK” Campaign
February 3, 2014
The Black Student Union, hoping to battle different stereotypes facing African Americans, launched the “WE ARE BLACK” campaign. Secretary of BSU Chantelle Beachum said they painted the exposed skin of different volunteers with common stereotypes and photographed them for the campaign. “We hope to combat these stereotypes by presenting them to the Penn State community and creating a more accurate, untold perception of African Americans that we all strive to be,” Beachum told the Daily Collegian.
