To commemorate Black History Month in February, Black United Students in partnership with the Department of Pan-African Studies is planning a series of programs and activities. Black History Month seeks to educate the Kent State community about African-American heritage, promote inclusion and a common understanding across cultures, and enhance social and leadership development among student participants.

“As in the past, we want to be as inclusive as possible,” says Avery Danage, president of Black United Students. “We encourage all university departments, individuals and community representatives to submit events and program dates for inclusion in the Black History Month calendar.”

To be included in the calendar, provide a listing of your organization, department or group events and activities with times, locations and a brief description to Danage at adanage1@kent.edu by Jan. 18.
