Throughout history, the culture and contributions of African Americans have, too often, been neglected or overlooked. That’s why Black History Month, which takes place in the United States each year in February, is an important observance.
Yvania Garcia-Pusateri, executive director of multicultural programs at Missouri State University, and two of her graduate assistants, Nia Morgan and Christina Gardner, share more about Black History Month and invite everyone to join in the celebration on campus.
Admission to Black History Month's events and activities is free and open to the public. For the banquet, guests should reserve their seats in advance. For a full programming schedule, visit the multicultural programs website.
