Friday, Feb. 14, 2014
The Utah State University Black Student Union (BSU), with the support of USU’s Access and Diversity Center, presents its annual event “A Night of Soul” Friday, Feb. 21. The event kicks off at 7 p.m. in the Taggart Student Center Stevenson Ballroom.
Organizers say “A Night of Soul” will be an evening to remember.
“I am excited that we have an outlet to express our culture through food, music and dance,” said Jeunee Roberts, BSU vice president.
This year, in partnership with Marvin Roberts, assistant vice president of Student Engagement and Diversity, and the Access and Diversity Center, the Black Student Union will welcome Roietta Goodwin and George Tribble as its distinguished guest speakers.
"Ms. Goodwin and Mr. Tribble are two of the original founding members of Utah State University’s Black Student Union,” said Shalayna Guisao, BSU president. “We are thrilled to invite these distinguished alums back to campus to celebrate the legacy they established here at USU.”
Goodwin and Tribble will talk about their experiences as students and will take questions from the audience.
“The Black Student Union has a long and important presence at Utah State University,” said Rachel Brighton, Black Student Union advisor and Access and Diversity Center program coordinator. “It is a significant part of the historical fabric of this campus. It is a racially and ethnically diverse student organization, it provides an important avenue for support and camaraderie, and is a critical outlet for education, awareness and leadership development. ‘Night of Soul’ will be an opportunity to highlight this historical campus organization. We invite the campus and community to join us.”
Doors for the event open at 6:30 p.m. and limited tickets are available at the door. Participants are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance at the Access and Diversity Center (TSC Room 315) or at the USU Card Office (TSC 212). Tickets are $12 and include dinner.
