Student African American Brotherhood (SAAB), founded in 1990, has grown to more than 200 chapters across college and university campuses; middle and high schools in more than 39 states in the U.S. SAAB operates through student chapters across the nation where young men of color enjoy the privilege of social, cultural and spiritual enrichment. SAAB increases the number of African American and Latino men who graduate from college by creating a positive peer community based on a spirit of caring. 



 

SAAB Founder/CEO, Dr. Bledsoe has become a member of the Editorial Board for the “Voices in Education: A Bermuda College Publication.” Bermuda College began its work some three years ago to create a peer-reviewed, scholarly journal encompassing a diverse editorial board. 

SAAB values this opportunity and looks forward to establishing a closer relationship with Bermuda College and perhaps a SAAB Chapter for its campus in the future to make the first International SAAB Chapter in the family.
