Why hello there RSHJ!! How are you doing? Emoni12 (talk) 13:59, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

Re: Your question[edit]

If I'm reading your user page correctly, National Union of Students Black Students' Campaign and Black Student Movement are the topics you're considering , right?

Both of these articles look like you could definitely expand them considerably, and both of them don't have many references, so I don't think you'd have the problem of running our of things to write about for either of them. You should probably make sure that you can find references for both of them; if one of them doesn't have many available references then you should should definitely choose the other.

Personally, if there's nothing else to differentiate between the two, I would choose National Union of Students Black Students' Campaign, because it is short enough that if you expand it to 1,500 characters, within the space of five days after you start working on it, it will be eligible to be nominated for Wikipedia:Did you know on the basis of fivefold expansion. (I'm guessing that a successful "Did you know" for your article might be worth extra credit for your class.)

I hope this helps! Feel free to message me back if you need any clarifications for what I said.

Also, I noticed that no one's given you the formal welcome yet, so:

Hi again, Ronald! Sorry I've taken so long to respond; I've been drowning in homework. I'd be happy to help you get through the requirements for WP:Did you know. Is there any part of it you'd like me to explain, specifically? Sophus Bie (talk) 12:37, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

Ronald, I'm glad you've got an article you're pleased with. Could you please be sure to change the links on the course page and on your user page to reflect this new article choice? Thanks. I'm sure you're planning to fill in the outline with what you plan to put in each section. That way your reviewers can give you suggestions. Marchantshapiro (talk) 13:37, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

  • Please make sure to double check the choice of your topic. National Black Police Association is a disambiguation page, so you'll want to indicate your specific target article. Let me know if you have questions. Best regards, Cind.amuse (Cindy) 07:19, 12 October 2011 (UTC)


Hello Ron! Thank you helping me out with my article and giving my value advice. I like that you are working with Black Student Association. Many people do not understand how powerful this organization is and I am glad that you will be talking about the different aspects of the organization. When describing be as detailed as possible on How? Why? when? Just the simple stuff. Elaborate on in the past and this organization came about. This should be a very interesting topic. I am excited to read this when you are finished. Emoni12 (talk) 14:00, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

Black Student Movement[edit]

I just removed some categories from your userspace, see [1]. Categories like those ones are only meant for final articles, not drafts in your userspace. You can add the code <nowiki></nowiki> around them or comment them out using a colon (:) like this: [[:Category:Student organizations]] → Category:Student organizations.

I just added some categories and links to Black Student Movement. If you're interested on expanding it then a search in the Google News archive gives plenty of material, some of which will reflect the reporting of the time e.g. [2][3][4]. Here's a book source on the founding: [5] Fences&Windows 20:51, 21 November 2011 (UTC)
