Picture of a raised fistAfrican American Club- Wednesdays A lunch in 322. The African American Club is more than a focus on Blacks in America, but of reflective moments set aside to understand basic human empathy and a remembrance of the struggles that are met in the journey to achieving justice for all people, regardless of their inherent characteristics. It does not only honors overcoming stereotypes but also the ability to change, grow, and nurture a rich culture and strong vibrancy of young people. The club is about supporting and revamping an image and understanding everyone through tolerance, acceptance, and compassion. It is about building a genuine sense of empathy, unity, and respect.
