[Transcript of audio clip]

TF: One of the missions of the Black Student Alliance that it was trying to portray, and I actually appreciate it, was that they did want to spread the knowledge of Black history in general, but that wasn’t the only topic, we weren’t always stuck on minorities and Black contemporary issues, we talked about gender roles and family societies, and just different political views and all that. It wasn’t always just minority outlooks; it was always different point of views from different people. I know it’s open to everyone, and just passing on knowledge was one of the things I was looking forward to from the Black Student Alliance.
