Black Culture Club (BCC)

Outside of the dinning hall, the Wall of Fame, created by the Black Culture Club (BCC), is a collection of great African-American leaders and thinkers.  As Shonelle McKenzie, the president of the BCC puts it: the BCC hopes to “promote positive propaganda for the Black community. The showing of Boyz N the Hood was meant to talk about the high crime rates that African-Americans in inner cities are faced with on a daily basis. It was also meant to try and brainstorm solutions for decreasing crime rates.”  The BCC hopes to bring awareness to the various issues surrounding race and, before the 1960’s, segregation.  McKenzie says: “The BCC is trying to do many things on campus including creating awareness on the issues that many African-Americans face in America everyday.  In todays society the most highlighted depiction of success for African-Americans seems to be through the NBA or through musical talent. The Black Culture Club tries to highlight these issues in a way that shows African-American youth that they can be anything they want to be and that they are not limited to only being what they are stereotyped as.”

As part of their effort to bring awareness to issues surrounding the culture of African-Americans, the BCC hosts movie nights like the recent one shown in the picture below.

McKenzie says: “The showing of Boyz N the Hood was meant to talk about the high crime rates that African-Americans in inner cities are faced with on a daily basis. It was also meant to try and brainstorm solutions for decreasing crime rates.”

The BCC is currently raffling off an iPad Mini in an effort to raise money for an organization called Mothers of Wonderful Children, an organization who’s mission is to increase the number of security cameras on streets in an effort to reduce crime rates.  Mothers of Wonderful Children also offers scholarships to help young teenagers afford college.

  4. It's a pleasant surprise to see a blog tending to erase the borders, rather than trying to draw a margin between the people. The place I live has final quarters, that look more like an America's nineteenth sentury ghetto, except for the size, population and degree of marginalization. Nevertheless, fingers crossed 'Boyz N da Hood', long way to go!
