Are you the only Black student in most/all of your classes at UC Berkeley? Well, in that way, like Michael Jackson sang, "You are not alone."

Fortunately, there are a few resources on campus to connect Black Cal students: like the Black Recruitment and Retention Center (BRRC).

On August 23, the BRRC hosted the "Welcome Black BBQ" on Memorial Glade. You may remember my previous blogs and Facebook rants about Memorial Glade (i.e. Parkour, Quiddich and weed smoke). This was different.

Although it was Ramadan, so I could not partake in the Watermelon festivities, it was a cool event. There was music, a jumper (aka "Bounce House") and a water balloon toss competition.

It was a beautiful day and a great opportunity to meet new people, and get reacquainted with others. I wasn't able to stay too long, but I got a few photos.
