Dear BBA Family,

The demonstrations, violence and murders which have taken place over the last

24 hours in Charlottesville, VA are a heartbreaking reminder of how far we still

must go in the fight for equality and respect in our country. I am personally

saddened by the actions of the white supremacists leading these protests, and find

it shameful that any political or public figure would refuse to recognize their

actions as terroristic.

We are proud to announce the launch of our newest publication, The Lighthouse Almanac.

BBA will continue our work as advocates for students through The Lighthouse by highlighting both the collective actions and experience of our members as well as other individuals committed to this work.

The Lighthouse Almanac is free for members of the Benjamin Banneker Association.
