2020 Black History Month

The Next 400 Years

Recognition * Restoration * Resilience

2019 marked 400 years since the first enslaved Africans were brought to the United States. African Americans have a rich and storied history, told and untold. Cal U’s 2020 Black History month events recognize and celebrate the struggles, triumphs and resiliency of people and events that blazed the trail to the next 400 years.

Black History month affords our nation intentional moments to pause and reflect on the storied lives of individuals whose struggles and triumphs are a permanent part of American History.

This month, we will use this platform to hear and reflect on the words and wisdom of historical and current inspirational African American and Black individuals.

 May we all be inspired and encouraged to learn from one another and to treat each other with dignity and respect.

Armed with the knowledge of our past, we can with confidence charter a course for our culture.                                                                                                              -Malcolm X
