Celebrate Black History Month at Georgian Court
February 15 @ 2:00 pm - February 26 @ 5:00 pm
Since 1926, this time of year has been designated to acknowledge the history, culture, and the plight of Black/African American people in the United States. In its earlier years, it was celebrated during the second week of February—to acknowledge Abraham Lincoln & Frederick Douglass’ birthdays. Today, Black History Month is an opportunity for people of all backgrounds to discuss the Black experience, both in the United States and abroad.
We invite you to join us for one (or more!) of the events as we explore Black History Month at GCU:
