Welcome Black is an annual event hosted by the Black Leadership Council. The event includes free food, performances and tabling from organizations that focus on the success of African-American students.
This year, the spotlight was on the members of the National Pan-Hellenic Council, also known as the Black Greek Letter Organizations or the Divine 9. The organizations gave their history, chants and performed strolls for the crowd in order to encourage involvement.
Other organizations present included CSUNaturals, the student chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists and the Black Student Union who serves as the umbrella organization.
Valley View News Reporter Ebony Hardiman has more on the events and student reactions to how it brings the black community at CSUN closer together.
