Black Heritage Month is a month of celebration, education, and reflection for remembering important people and events in the history of the African diaspora.

Since 1976, the month of February has officially been designated Black Heritage Month to celebrate the achievement’s by Black and African American people and recognize their central role in the history of the United States. All members of the community are encouraged to take some time this month to engage in open dialogue, reflect, celebrate, and attend some of our Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) community events.

 In an effort to further develop our cultural competence and work towards creating a safer and welcoming community for everyone on campus, below are a few links on the origins and importance of Black Heritage Month.
