Black Boy Joy, hosted by The Society of African American Studies (SAAS) during the Spring Semester of 2019. This event was a celebration of Black Boy Joy and Black Manhood. SAAS wanted to create an event that uplifted and supported African American men at MSU. SAAS handed out care packages and flowers to male African American students and faculty as they walked by. Participants were encouraged to take a positive affirmation and leave one on the board. SAAS created encouraging name tags such as "Hello my name is: Intelligent" and "Hello my name is: Gifted", these name tags were worn with pride by male African American students and faculty that attended the event!
