April 21st - April 23rd 2017
"Sometimes the things that tear us down are also what holds us up."
Our 10th Annual Black Family Weekend will explore the roots of the black family; our beliefs, values, and biases and how these things operate for or against the community as a whole. We will discuss how these things have
or have not changed over time, depending on geographic location and intersecting identities through discusions like Misogynoir & Hyper-masculinity.
Black Student Union invites YOU and your families to our 10th annual Black Family Weekend!
Every year the Black Student Union of UNH holds a weekend long event in celebration of black families, unity, community, and black culture. This event is NOT exclusive to black people/families only but serves to appeal
to the students of color and their families on campus with activies, events, and discussions they can relate to.
We want to make this year's Black Family Weekend even more special than usual because this will be our 10TH annual Black Family Weekend Event!
