Black History Month

February is Black History Month

As part of Indiana University’s commitment to create environments in which all students, faculty, and staff feel welcomed, the university is proud to honor the backgrounds and identities of the members of IU’s community through heritage month celebrations. Supported by OVPDEMA, IU’s 2019 Black History Month celebration includes a variety of programming, such as discussion panels, lectures, musical performances, film screenings, and other activities on each of its campuses.

The vast majority of these events are open to the entire IU community and its neighbors, so OVPDEMA encourages you to participate and learn more about the black experience and its past, present, and future contributions to society.
