Celebrate Black History Month

Feb 20, 2024

As February unfolds, we are reminded of the profound significance of Black History Month – a time dedicated to honoring the remarkable achievements, invaluable contributions, and enduring legacies of Black individuals throughout history.

Black History Month is not only an opportunity to reflect on the struggles and triumphs of the past but also a time to celebrate the rich tapestry of culture, resilience, and excellence that continues to shape our world today. It serves as a reminder of the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion in all aspects of society.

Throughout history, Black pioneers, visionaries, and activists have left an indelible mark on every facet of human endeavor – from art, literature, and music to science, technology, politics, and beyond. Their courage, perseverance, and unwavering commitment to justice have paved the way for progress and inspired generations to come.

This month, the Rockingham Community College Department of Student Life urges the campus community to come together to honor the achievements of Black leaders, past and present, and to recommit ourselves to the ongoing struggle for equality, opportunity, and justice for all. Student Life urges everyone to amplify Black voices, celebrate Black excellence, and strive to create a more inclusive and equitable world for everyone.

Join Student Life in celebrating Black History Month with two events in the Whitcomb Student Center Activity Room.

  • On Thursday, Feb. 22, posters showcasing a historical Black figure who inspires you will be displayed and discussed at 11 a.m. Participants can bring a pre-made poster, or can come at 10 a.m. and make one.
  • On Wednesday, Feb. 28, Student Life will host a trivia event at 11 a.m.
