|To enlighten. To irradiate. To brighten. These were some of the goals of this year’s Black History Month committee, who strove to shine a light on the past and present contributions of Black students, faculty and staff at NC State.
After a call for students to be a part of this year’s planning committee, students flocked to the first meeting to express their interests and share their ideas. After much brainstorming and collaboration, the committee selected the theme, “The Future is Bright Black,” which not only captures the brilliance of Black culture and excellence, but also emphasizes its multiplicity across the African diaspora. The theme embodies the conviction and hope of the current generation and the role of Blackness, not only on campus, but within the community and across the world.
Check out all the events we have planned for you. We hope to see you there!
