"I could think of no better way than for us to kick off Black History Month than through servicing the communities that we will soon represent. With that being said we will be filling the Funky Town Fridges," says Arielle Williams, Black Law Students Association (BLSA) president and third-year law student.
Convened by law professors Lynne Rambo, Meg Penrose and Brian Holland, 26 Texas A&M University School of Law students, staff and faculty including Dean Robert B.
