In order to produce research about issues pertinent to the African American community, about 40 African American high school seniors will be on CSUâ€™s campus through June 19.
As part of the 17th annual Black Issues Forum, students from Colorado, Michigan, New Mexico, Texas and Utah will participate in research and discussions.
After the four-day conference, the students will present their findings, according to a press release from the university.
Students will study one of the following four areas:
African Americans and Politics: Black Leadership in the Hip Hop Generation,
African Americans and the Environment: The Importance of Green Energy in Black Communities,
African Americans and Technology: Black Scientists: Past, Present and Future, and
African Americans and Society: Exploring the Impacts of High Rates of Incarceration in Black Communities.
CSU faculty, staff and graduate students will help participants with their research.
