Black History Month:
Our Past. Our Heritage. Our Future.


Join us during February for a series of virtual events celebrating African American traditions, music, food, literature and more. Our theme this year is “Black History Month: Our Past. Our Heritage. Our Future.”

Join us for historically Black colleges and universities transfer fairs, faculty presentations, cooking classes and everything in between. You’ll even have the chance to get involved and let us know what Black History Month means to you!
