James Farmer Multicultural Center’s Black History Month Celebration

Healing Through History: Recognizing Our Struggles While Celebrating Our Triumphs

The story of the Black experience in the United States has fluctuated between a series of struggles and triumphs. Since arriving to this continent on slave ships, people of African descent have endured hardships and tragedies from slavery to the current mass incarceration epidemic. Despite the many generational systemic injustices, African Americans have provided groundbreaking achievements in the arts, sciences, politics, and entertainment, to name a few, to transform the global community. Join the James Farmer Multicultural Center’s celebration and recognition of these historic, triumphant moments. A full list of events can be found here.
