On Thursday night students participated in an open forum discussion about “Black in America.” The discussion was led by Flossie Jackson, president of the Black Student Union, and sponsored by the College Republicans, College Democrats and BSU.
The documentary discusses black men in America and topics such as AIDS, employment, education and the ratio of black male incarceration compared to white males. It also focuses on the positive outcomes and achievements from these struggles.
Students agreed it was important to keep in mind how far African Americans have come and to appreciate even how far Palm Beach Atlantic University has come in terms of racial issues.
