Juneteenth Description


Interested in participating in upcoming Juneteenth activities?


Good afternoon BLN!

It has been some time since our last post.
Many are aware the BLN paused on-campus operations this past year due to the recent state SB17/DEI legislation and university compliance. With that said the BLN organizational may no longer host activities or continue usage of university resource platforms.

However, BLN is in operation and will continue to support faculty, staff and students. We just need to collaborate differently; which are the processes that we are currently working on.

We would love to here from the BLN community. Any suggestions or recommendations are very welcome.

Please Continue to Be Safe, Stay Connected and Share Information with Others!

Thanks everyone!
~ Debbie

Tuesday November 7th 2023 Make It Your Day!


“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven" (Matthew 5:14-16).
We, the employees of the University of Houston and members of the UH Black Leadership Network (BLN) wish to express our deepest gratitude and sympathy to the Brown family in the passing of Janelle Brown
Janelle is the light that will continue to shine brightly in our hearts and will truly be missed.


Hoping everyone a Happy and Safe Holiday Weekend as we commemorate and celebrate Fathers and Freedom Day!

~ Debbie
BLN President
