Black Law Student Association (BLSA)
Northeastern University School of Law's Black Law Student Association - Kemet Chapter, is excited to welcome everyone to the 2020-2021 year! Our vision this year is solidarity. We believe that Blackness is not monolithic, and that each and every single person has unique perspectives and experiences to bring to BLSA. We also deeply believe that as a result of violence and systemic racism and oppression, we all have a shared experience and responsibility. Our core values this year are knowledge, power and self-care. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, "Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable... Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals." We invite each and every one of you to join this journey toward justice and look forward to working with you all.
What Solidarity Looks Like
On Wednesday, June 10, from Noon to 1:30 pm, the School of Law held a virtual community gathering entitled “What Solidarity Looks Like.” The agenda for the event was created by BLSA and supported by other affinity groups and the SBA, who stand with BLSA in solidarity. This event was an educational community gathering focused on supporting Black students. Professors Jonathan Kahn and Patricia Williams discussed topics related to White privilege, anti-Blackness, anti-racism and effective allyship.
