Happy Black Liberation Month Everyone!
Week 2 Calendar
We made it through the year that was January 2021, and now it’s time to continue our shine! We have a growing calendar of amazing events planned by our community for us all to enjoy. The 2021 Black Liberation Month (BLM) theme is Black Joy As Resistance: Lemons into Lemonade. We have two logos this year: the one you will see all month long (and above) was created by Norris Johnson c/o 2023; and another by Chidi Agbo c/o 2021 that you will have a chance to peep in the coming weeks via our Limited Edition BLM2021 drip! Our most sincere appreciation to both members of the community for the creative energy they shared with us. Be sure to check out our IG (@theblackhousesu) this week to see all of the submissions from our logo contest.
You can click the link to find our general BLM Calendar 2021 or check out the "upcoming events" on our website. We have our usual events, like the Digital Get Down: Black Power Edition and the BLM Kickoff “Spotlighting Student Art”. We also have critical conversations around “Black Activism in the Bay Area” and “REFUGE: Queerness, Spirituality, and Religion”. But it doesn’t stop there, so be sure to check the calendar so you won’t miss out!
Still need more incentives? We will be raffling off some of our Limited Edition merch, but you have to show up to qualify! More info and details to come—but be sure you don’t miss out on these amazing items! One way to begin collecting your submissions is to check out our banner going up at Tressider this week. Take a pic with the banner, tag us on IG using the #BLMStanford2021.
To the Community:
We hope you are finding space for rest and positive well being, while continuing necessary precautions to stay as safe and healthy as you can in the midst COVID-19. We understand the toll folks are feeling as we continue to move away from March 2020 into a new school year, and possibly a new year in general. We're writing to share some updates regarding the Black House, in hopes of providing some light at this time.
While we are no longer in “shelter in place”, the physical Center will not be open to the public until further notice. This also means we are not accepting reservations for the Lounge, nor Community Room at this time. Regardless of distance and space, Dr.Roz, Dom, and the Programming Assistants are still providing support and events/programming virtually. We can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Following the senseless murder of George Floyd (and the nameless others whose liveshave been lost due to the nonstop police brutality in this country), the Black Community Services Center has released a Statement of Support
