Black History Month

Black History Month

During Black History Month (BHM), the Black Student Association will host a series of events representing the theme “Celebrating the Beauty of Our Culture”. Considering the negative events that have occurred in recent years across the country, and within the city of Baltimore in particular, we want to take a moment to reflect on the positive aspects of Black Culture in America and the beauty of who we are as a people. We are both hosting and collaborating on several events this month, beginning with our annual cultural heritage event, UMOJA on February 7th at 7 PM in McGuire Hall. We will kick off this month-long celebration with delicious soul food, music and amazing performances all hosted by Mr. Turn Up. Our first GBM on February, 12th in the CIE is called Hair Code. This will be a discussion about black hair, celebrating its beauty and versatility and discussing its significance in our community. The next day, February 13th, we will be showing Love and Basketball at 6 PM in the CIE. For the remainder of February, we will collaborate with AMP to host a trip to the National Museum of African American History and Culture, and we will collaborate with SGA for a Cook-Off in McGuire Hall. Finally, our second GBM will be a Listening Party, celebrating the music of several current black artists.
