Black Student Union

The Black Student Union is an Organization dedicated to unifying, uplifting and empowering Black People on and off campus.

The Black Student Unions mission is to first, unify Black people on San Francisco States campus through cultural, political, social, and informational events. Second is to nationalize our organization and create a solidified communicative database with other Black Student Unions across the country. Third, to build leaders and empower them with knowledge and a methodology, so they can further progress our struggle for liberation through organizing, returning to their community and productively create historical centers that will teach our children their REAL history and by any other means necessary to produce and ensure the ends of justice health peace and freedom. Last but not least, to unify the Black Afrikan struggle in the world, but particularly in our Motherland.

The first Black Student Union (BSU) on any campus was founded in 1966 at San Francisco State University. Each cohort of BSU members contribute their own unique legacy to this history. While the decades after the 1960s and 1970s are documented and being prepared to illustrate the manifold waves of leadership at San Francisco State during the 19080s, 1990s, 2000s, 2010s and beyond.
