NAACP meets tonight at six

Today at 6 p.m., the VSU branch of the NAACP will have their biweekly meeting on the third floor of the Student Union in Meeting Room 2.
According to VSU NAACP president Kim Tucker, various topics will be discussed, including the 2010 census and upcoming community service events. The NAACP is an organization that involves itself in both community service and political debates.
“I joined NAACP because of my own personal interest in politics. Being that my major is political science, I have a passion for the joining of equalities for minorities,” Jasmine Coer, NAACP member, said.
On Feb. 25, the NAACP along with the Black Student League (BSL) are hosting a simple game night and meet-and-greet for the community and members of both organizations, continuing the celebration of Black History Month.
Just last week the committees celebrated their first annual Black Heritage Week in honor of Black History Month. “This event was held to embrace the black community in America as well as [reflect on] on the past struggles of the Black community,” said Coer.
One of the larger events in which the VSU branch of NAACP has participated is the county-wide LAMP festival. During this event, the NAACP teams up with numerous venders, Greeks, and local charities to serve free food, bring entertainment, and donate small gifts to less fortunate families within the community.
