Save the date for our in-person Black History Month Celebration on February 22, from 5:30 – 8 p.m. at our Kansas Avenue Campus! This event is open to all students and families, staff and their guests, and neighbors.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and our show begins promptly at 6 p.m. with food to follow. No RSVP is needed. Wear all black to show solidarity with the community!
This year’s theme is “Black Resistance,” which we will honor through student performances, a shared meal for all, and an academic showcase highlighting student work and research that honors African American culture, history, and perseverance.
Despite historic and ongoing oppression, Black people have found ways to nurture and protect Black lives through activism, advocacy, organizing, and the arts. Join as we explore and celebrate this rich history and heritage, reflect on how it has impacted our lives and shared experiences, and understand how we can be active allies with every member of our diverse learning community.
