About Us

BASO seeks to culturally empower African students and the student body at large to become socially, politically, and critically aware of African Cultures. Our goal is to enter the complexities of Africa as a continent by looking at the diversity of each country and understanding these diversities through a sociopolitical and sociocultural lens. Through the use of discussions among members, intercultural events, and interactive workshops, myths can be dispelled, and dynamic understandings will be revealed. Africa is not just Uganda, Kenya, Ghana, Congo, Rwanda, Nigeria, or Mali; numerous countries constitute her very essence. Despite the overarching goal, even if this club leaves some with only a glimpse of Africa- the food, the music, a language-at least students will have gotten a salient and actual insight into a continent of many but a place of one.









Members Benefits

* BASO allows members to find solace and community amongst each other. * BASO creates an education space that brings the continent of Africa to the greater community through discussion, workshops, and events centered around Afro-Diasporic cultures and communities, leaving members with more knowledge about the continent as well as allowing the E-board to also learn from the general community.
