The Hamilton High School Black Student Union (BSU) is a student organization that seeks to guide all of its members toward the aims of scholarship, leadership, and service. With over 400 active members BSU is the largest organization of its kind in the Los Angeles Unified School District. An Executive Board which consists of executive officers, committee leaders, and grade-level representatives serves as the leadership arm and guides the overall direction of the organization. Individual committees are charged with the task of doing the daily work of BSU, and the grade level representatives communicate to the members of their respective grade- levels during weekly meetings.
BSU embraces and unapologetically celebrates the plight of people of African ancestry, particularly African Americans. With the belief that "whatsoever man has done, man can do." (Marcus Garvey), we learn from, and are inspired by, people of our heritage who have excelled in spite of seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Though titled Black Student Union, BSU accepts members from all races and ethnic backgrounds who share the desire, appreciation, respect for, and willingness to learn of Black culture.
