Black History Month

Black History Month began 53 years ago on the campus of Kent State University. In officially designating it six years later, President Gerald Ford urged Americans to "seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history."

Black History Month 2022 at Jacksonville University was a huge success and we are looking forward to Black History Month 2023. Stay tuned for updates as the calendar planning for next year happens.
