Black Leadership Ambassadors for Culture and Knowledge (B.L.A.C.K.) is an ambassador (mentorship) program established by the Black males of the UC Davis African Continuum group. Our goals for this ambassadors program are to provide Black male students with the knowledge, skills and abilities they need to successfully adjust and transition to campus life at UC Davis. The keys to making this ambassadors program successful will involve the guidance and leadership of all Black male faculty and staff.

On behalf of the Black males of the African Continuum, and in hopes of fostering meaningful relationships through B.L.A.C.K
