Black United Students encourages all to congregate and celebrate the last days of Black History Month Thursday on the Risman Plaza.

BUS will hold a “Unity Circle” on the Risman Plaza “K” at 5 p.m., with keynote speaker Steve Perry speaking at 7 p.m. in the Kiva. 

“The purpose of the Unity Circle is to end Black History Month on a positive and unified standpoint,” freshman fashion merchandising major and member of BUS Emonte Wimbush said.

During the Unity Circle a member from Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., will open with a brief speech. Students will recite the Black National Anthem and sing “This Little Light of Mine.” 

The Unity Circle will close with the Lord’s Prayer and closing remarks from a BUS member.  

Following the circle will be a speech from Steve Perry titled “Not Yo Mama’s Classroom: The Truth About Education.”
