Owensboro Colleges hold March for Change

OWENSBORO, Ky. (WEHT) — Two local Black Student Union chapters at two Owensboro colleges are marching for change.

The Black Student Union (BSU) organizations at Kentucky Wesleyan College (KWC) and Brescia University are hosting a March for Change on March 27 at 2 p.m. The event begins on the front yard of the KWC and continues with the march to Brescia.

KWC BSU President Tracy McGee says the purpose of the march is to remind ourselves that “any change we want to see has to start with me first”. McGee explained that the event was planned to bring people together and raise awareness of ongoing instances of discrimination, police brutality and social injustice in the world.

Speakers include Rev. Rhondalyn Randolph of Pleasant Point Missionary Baptist Church and KWC Senior Armand Childs. Childs will share his experience of injustice and encourage others to change for the good of the world and others.

Andrea Denise Bolden, KWC’s Justice and Inclusion Coordinator, shared, “I am grateful that the Black Student Union of Kentucky Wesleyan College and the Black Student Union of Brescia University are partners in hosting this unity march. Collaboration is a great way to network, create awareness and work towards change together. I look forward to sharing and holding space with our Panther students.”

The public is invited to participate in the March for Change.
