Students Organized for Black and Hispanic Unity


SOBHU Members with Charles Terrell '70

Welcome to SOBHU's Webpage!

Students Organized for Black and Hispanic Unity is a student run organization with the intent in enlightening the Colby campus through discourse about race and privilege. We also stand to showcase Black and Hispanic culture through lectures, speakers, and performing arts events. The club maintains an office space in The Pugh Center where ample resources are available on the African Diaspora and Latino traditions.
