Black History Month 2021


February 2021

February is Black History Month and a great opportunity to celebrate the many contributions African Americans have made in our local communities and state, to this country and to the world. The Center for Diversity, Interfaith and Inclusion is sponsoring several events in recognition of Black History: 

The Black History Art Contest co-sponsored with the IT Department is based on the poem, “The Hill We Climb,” by National Youth Poet Laureate, Amanda Gorman. Please see COBRAnnouncements for Details.  A musical and poetry performance by Bhakti Hough and accompanists as well as a presentation by Coker Professor Dr. Danny Malone are all exciting events planned for this February.

Additionally, while we have this specific month to highlight achievements and focus on those that have been outstanding leaders and accomplished great things in their field, it is also a reminder that recognition and acknowledgement of the role African Americans have played and continue to play in the advancement of all fields is an ongoing conversation and should be included in our discussions about great leadership, innovation and inspiration throughout the year.


Be part of our community, as we work together to learn, lead, and inspire.
