BSA Holds 40th Reunion

By Photography by Justin Fox Burks


The Rhodes Black Student Association (BSA) held a 40th reunion celebration on campus April 17-18. Founded in 1969, the BSA “operates to promote unity within the African-American community, and to create harmonious relationships among people of different cultures and backgrounds.” Membership is open to all Rhodes students.

The photos are highlights of the Saturday evening reception in the McCallum Ballroom in the Bryan Campus Life Center.
