Oct. 14, 2021

On Thursday, October 14, 2021 at 5:00 PM, the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students and Princeton's Black Student Union hosted B(l)ack Together, a networking event for Black undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, and staff. This year's event marked 20 years of Princeton's Black Student Union. Mitchel Charles '18, ODUS program coordinator, welcomed attendees and thanked program supporters, including the Carl A. Fields Center for Equality + Cultural Understanding. Alexis Rankine '23, vice president of the Black Student Union, followed Charles and highlighted the important role that B(l)ack Together plays in welcoming new members of the Princeton University community and connecting Black-identified people across institutional affiliation. Following the speakers, attendees enjoyed food from Morgan's Island Grill and were encouraged to engage in conversation at their tables using a series of questions developed by students. The event concluded with dancing and a group photo.
