Anya Zentmeyer

This week at Grand Valley State University, get in touch with the leader in you during You Beautiful Black Women’s Black Luv Week, a week of events that aim at promoting black leadership, excellence and unity among minority organizations.

The events are all co-sponsored by various minority student organizations in conjunction with February’s Black History Month, including Minorities Interested in Business, the Black Student Union, the GVSU chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the National Pan-Hellenic Council and more.

“For many minority organizations here on campus, unity is a very important factor to our success,” said Angileena Gibson, YBBW member. “During Black History Month, it is our critical obligation to enhance and enable the bonds, connections and interactions of African Americans and all other races to become more knowledgeable and comfortable with comprehending the black culture and the purpose of its history and journey.”
