African American/Black History Month

Black Resistance: Hometown Heroes


Celebrate Black History Month at Dallas College as we honor the achievements and sacrifices of African Americans today and throughout history. This year’s theme is “Black Resistance: Hometown Heroes.”

Join us in February as we come together to remember the past and build a future honoring diversity and equity. Through a series of innovative events that celebrate African American traditions, music, film, literature and more, you can join the conversation and share what Black History Month means to you.


Dallas College presents the Civil Rights Speaker Series as part of the month-long Black History Month celebration in February and early March. The series typically includes three to five speaker seminars, including guest speakers, faculty lectures and presentations about civil rights. Attendees will learn more about the U.S. civil rights and women's rights movements, listen to stories from social justice warriors and hear more about our Civil Rights Tour.
