MtA establishes new Black Caucus on campus


Mount Allison University has established a new Black affinity group on campus to cultivate a sense of community for the institution’s Black students, faculty, staff, and alumni. In addition to the MtA Black Caucus, the university will also run initiatives to empower MtA’s Black communities, such as Black Health and Wellness Circles and “Braids and Fades Fridays.” “When we talk about unpacking Black history, we must recognize that anti-Black racism, discrimination, and oppression are not a concept of the past,” said MtA Director of Student Life Danai BĂ©langer. “As an institution, we will continue to uplift our Black communities and create safe and affirming spaces for all who call this place home.”
