    Black Student Union Club

    Post  annanaran on Thu Jan 07, 2010 11:55 pm

    Discrimination and prejudice have existed throughout history. In particular, African Americans have had an exceptionally hard fight for their civil rights. As we celebrate the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday on Jan 18, we are reminded of the continuing journey of the African Americans in the struggle for equality. The Black Student Union is a club on campus that focuses on assisting students with the issues facing African Americans. Even though the problems with discrimination have drastically improved over the years, there are still issues with cultural bias. That is where BSU comes in. Meeting every Wednesday in D-1 around 12:30 at lunch, the club gathers together to discuss issues that face African Americans.
    The friendly atmosphere of the BSU meetings allows for a safe and supportive environment for students to speak about any problems that they are facing. Whether their problems are racial or they simply need help in school, BSU is able to lend a hand and offer help and support. One of the vice presidents of the club, Alex Ethridge shares that they have “club study sessions to help each other with subjects we're [they’re] having trouble with, and basically try to be a place where African American students can come and not feel alienated or discriminated against.” The club’s advisor, Mr. Spruill mentioned that the clubs’ discussions vary from talking about current events to setting up fundraisers and volunteer projects. He also added that the club is open to students of any race.
    BSU sets up projects to help spread awareness of the African American culture on campus. They recently held a fashion/talent show. Alex Ethridge explained that the show featured members of the club that modeled “modern fashions from popular stores.” Interspersed in the show they had some members perform “pieces and speeches by prominent figures in African American history,” while others performed musical numbers. In addition to fundraising events, they also set up study sessions in which they all work together to get ready for the dreaded finals. Club Members are currently gathering thoughts and ideas on how to celebrate Black History Month. [still trying to get information on Martin Luther King Jr. Day]
    The club is made up of many students attending AHS that want to make a difference. The president of the club is senior Ashley Ethridge. The club has three vice presidents, sophomore, Clarence Irvin; junior, Alex Ethridge; and senior, Robell Abdella. Finally, the advisor of the club is Mr. Carter Spruill. Under their leadership, BSU provides support and awareness of the African American culture for students at AHS.

    Anna, please make the following changes. Thanks!

    As we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Jan. 18, we are reminded of the continuing journey of the African Americans in the struggle for equality. The Black Student Union (BSU), a club on campus, focuses on assisting students with issues facing African Americans. Although racial discrimination has not been as prominent over the years, there are still issues with cultural bias [Anna, could you clarify “cultural bias”? It sounds ambiguous.]. That is where BSU comes in. Meeting every Wednesday in D-1 around 12:30 at lunch, the club gathers to discuss [issues that face African Americans] [Use different phrasing. It’s the same as the previous sentence].
    The friendly atmosphere of the BSU meetings allows for a safe and supportive environment for students to speak about any problems that they are facing [Rewrite this sentence. “Atmosphere” and “environment” are repetitive; you also reuse “facing” again.] Whether their problems are racial or simply school-related, the BSU is able to lend a hand and offer help and support. As one of the vice presidents of the club, junior Alex Ethridge shares that they have “club study sessions to help each other with subjects [they’re] having trouble with, and basically try to be a place where African American students can come and not feel alienated or discriminated against.” Club adviser Mr. Spruill mentioned that the club’s discussions vary from talking about current events to setting up fundraisers and volunteer projects. He also added that the club is open to students of any race.
    BSU sets up projects [Find a different word for “set up”] to spread awareness of the African American culture on campus. They recently held a fashion and talent show [Where and when?]. Alex explained that the show featured members of the club that modeled “modern fashions from popular stores.” Interspersed in the show [“Interspersed” sounds awkward. Reword.] they had some members perform “pieces and speeches by prominent figures in African American history,” while others performed musical numbers.
    In addition to fundraising events, members also plan study sessions during which they all work together to get ready for the dreaded semester finals. Club members are currently gathering thoughts and ideas on how to celebrate Black History Month. [still trying to get information on Martin Luther King Jr. Day] [Yes, get more info please (: A paragraph on MLK Day celebrations would be good, considering that should be one of the focuses of this article.]
    The club is comprised of many students attending AHS who want to make a difference. The president of the club is senior Ashley Ethridge. The club has three vice presidents, sophomore, Clarence Irvin; junior, Alex Ethridge; and senior, Robell Abdella. [You don’t really have to name all the officers. If you want to, just find a better way to integrate them rather than listing.] Under their leadership, BSU provides support and awareness of the African American culture for students at AHS.

The Black Student Union is a club on campus that focuses on assisting students with the issues facing African Americans. Even though the problems with discrimination have drastically improved over the years, African Americans still face negativity towards their culture. That is where BSU comes in. Meeting every Wednesday in D-1 around 12:30 at lunch, the club gathers together to discuss a variety of topics.

    The friendly atmosphere of the BSU meetings allows for a safe and supportive place for students to speak about any problems that they are dealing with.

He also added that the club is open to students of any race.

    BSU plans projects to help spread awareness of the African American culture on campus. They are currently planning a fashion / talent show on Feb. 25. Alex Ethridge explained that the show is going to feature members of the club that will model “modern fashions from popular stores.” During the show they have members that will perform “pieces and speeches by prominent figures in African American history,” while others will perform musical numbers. Alex was pleased to inform that have the “UCLA's step team” signed up to perform. [also waiting for the email for the place where the show will be held] In addition to the fundraising events, they also set up study sessions in which they all work together to get ready for the dreaded finals. Club members are currently gathering thoughts and ideas on how to celebrate Black History Month.
    As for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, BSU and APN have teamed together to construct segment that will air on APN. [waiting for the email to get the date for the airing] The segment is left to be a surprise for all students; however we do know that it will be a nice tribute to Martin Luther King. Jr.

    The club is made up of many students attending AHS that want to make a difference. The president of the club is senior Ashley Ethridge. The club also has three vice presidents.
