Welcome to the CFHS Black Student Union!
Who are we?
- First and foremost, we are a community learning and growing together, doing our best to understand others and build a better future.
- We are a group of students here at Forge that want to fight for Justice and Unity with a special focus on educating and empowering Black culture and History!
Why are we here?
- We’re making a safe space for Colonial Forge students to discuss topics that are often left behind in the day-to-day curriculum while also celebrating the beauty of Black culture here in America
- We want to uplift students who are facing discrimination and injustices and provide a community where they can be heard and supported.
The goals of our BSU is to:
- To increase awareness and appreciation for African American/Black issues, history and culture among the student body at Colonial Forge High School.
- To create a clearer identity and opportunities for involvement in life at school for our students, while providing a support system for students both academically and socially.
- Break down negative stereotypes attached to the black community, through the promotion of a positive image of African American/Black culture.
When do we meet?
- For now, due to Covid-19, we will be meeting virtually on Google meet every other Monday at 3:15! (Check the calendar below for any changes :)
- We will send the access link through email
