Upcoming Black History Month Events at Kent State Geauga and Twinsburg Academic Center

Black History Month — or National African American History Month — is an annual celebration of achievements by Black Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of African Americans in U.S history. In 1970, according to the Kent Stater, Kent State University began the observance of Black History Month. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month.

Join us for special Black History Month presentations at Kent State Geauga and Twinsburg Academic Center throughout the month of February to pay tribute to notable black figures in U.S. history whose contributions to society continue to reap benefits for us all.
