This year, the theme of Black History Month is "Renaissance." Loyola's Black Student Association will be hosting a series of events in appreciation of Black art, literature, and culture. There will be an emphasis placed on art, literature, and culture originating in Baltimore. This will be a month of self-exploration and discovery aimed at community building and growth of the whole person.
