During the month of February, the Black History Month Steering Committee leads the main campus, Elon Law, our graduate and professional schools in a series of premier events that celebrate and bring heightened awareness and understandings to African, African-American and African diasporic cultures.
In the month preceding and following the February series, the Black History Month Steering Committee will feature an event that reminds the campus community that the Black experience neither begins nor ends in February (please visit the Events calendar to learn more). Through these events, students, faculty, staff, alumni and visitors can experience Black History from new perspectives and gain an understanding that Black History is Everyone’s History.
Black History is more than a recognition of past icons in Black Culture: it is an ongoing celebration of all achievements and positive contributions to society. It is also a recognition of the long and painful Black experience in America and the triumphs that Blacks have overcome. Black History Month at Elon is a way of celebrating the achievements and legacy of Blacks at Elon University and the cultures from which they come.
