Media Advisory: Bay Area California State University leaders address African American congregations on Feb. 20 "Super Sunday"
WHAT: The Sixth Annual Super Sunday. California State University (CSU) officials will address the congregations of Bay Area African American churches to inform parents and children of the advantages of a college education and emphasize that they must begin planning for college as early as the sixth grade.

This year the program will reach more than 100 predominantly African American churches statewide.
