2022 Black and African Heritage Month

The Center for Culture, Equity, and Empowerment, along with other campus departments, is celebrating Black and African Heritage Month with numerous events all throughout the month of February!

This year, we aim to center and uplift the wellbeing of Black life on our campus. To provide opportunities for storytelling, reflection, and thought. To pay homage to our ancestors, and to honor the work and the impacts that many of us have made that further exemplify our resilience and strength.

Check out all of the events happening around campus below.

Please note that the calendar will be updated frequently, so be sure to check back for any changes or updates!
