100th Love Poem for Students of Color
By Vejea Jennings, an alumnus, a former BSU board member, a professor, a motion in the Movement.

black / brown / yellow   mindstrokes genius
canvas me a campus   fingerprint a fist in public
in the face of what's missing   us and them / immense
black / brown / yellow   brilliant   well-read / earth-bred
research me a future   pen tomorrows in obsidian
in sienna   in amber    then recite it aloud
into the mouths of children   into the ears of elders   
and our communities will be better for it
black / brown / yellow   shades imagine
dream with your hands    act with your minds
question the answers   color a campus
rainbow a moment   then tone it black
magic it brown   burn it yellow
and our communities will be better for it
black / brown / yellow   sound back
echo all that you learn   gift us urgency and more
we adore you   black / brown / yellow
and we know   we support you
with hearts of hard silk
with minds of new fabric
and our communities will be better for it
Confronting Internalized Phobias

InternalizedPhobiaThursday, March 4th, 2010
4pm, LGBT Resource Center

Fear, Shame, Hate, Guilt. These are all emotions that can be associated with internalized phobias that members of the Queer community may experience on a regular basis. Why do we, as human beings, hate ourselves sometimes? Why do we internalize the fear and hate that others carry about what is unknown to them? 
Please join us, as we critically explore ourselves and these questions. Light refreshments will be served. For questions or more information, please contact Marissa.Yenpasook@gmail.com.
