Black History Month is a period of reflection, one that can be as painful and solemn as memories of our nation's history—which must be told in all of its complexities to educate, inspire and heal—are relived. Despite the distressing historical realities faced by the Black community, Black History Month also gives us a platform to celebrate the contributions, triumphs and advancements in spite of adversity. It is a time to honor the many contributions both past and present.
Join us this month as we spotlight the accomplishments and achievements of the Black members of our community, and learn about the many ways we are supporting change, progress and equity.
At Adelphi, we see Black History Month as an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of Black people in our community and around the world, giving us all an opportunity to re-commit to the ideals of social justice and equity.
From an art exhibit to a documentary screening to dialogues and public lectures among the Adelphi community, we hope to challenge, reflect, educate and help build a better future during this month of events. Please review how our office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and our 51-year-old African, Black and Caribbean Studies Program is leading the change, our seven years of progress, and our recent actions taken.
February 2023 events will be announced. Check back soon!
