Saira K.I’m a senior and the proud President of the Black Student Union here at Chino High. It’s my second year in the BSU and I hope I do a good job being in this position. I love music, cats, hair, and anything purple. I’ve been a part of a few clubs on this campus in the past years and enjoyed being involved in them. I love to speak my mind and am looking for new things to learn about all the time.
I am the your Vice President and a junior this year. I'm very involved in black culture. I enjoy going to the African festivals with my aunt who's from Gambia, and I like to wear tribal clothes on the holidays. I am half west African. I’ve been involved in the BSU for two years now and this year I hope to be more involved in anyway I can. I love art, music, and swimming.

Ask a teacher about African (American) History...
Short answer: yes! Based on art, skeletal remains, and language, scientists can tell Africans have been using the oceans' currents to sail from West Africa to the Americas for over a thousand years. But they are not the only ones. There is plenty of evidence to suggest Asians and Pacific Islanders as far away as New Zealand and Australia have been coming to the Americas too.

by Ivan van Sertima Year Published: 1976 nonfiction
They Came Before Columbus reveals a compelling, dramatic, and superbly detailed documentation of the presence and legacy of Africans in ancient America. Examining navigation and shipbuilding; cultural analogies between Native Americans and Africans; the transportation of plants, animals, and textiles between the continents; and the diaries, journals, and oral accounts of the explorers themselves, Ivan Van Sertima builds a pyramid of evidence to support his claim of an African presence in the New World centuries before Columbus.
