Black History Month Celebration

Our Theme for 2024 is “Rhythms of Resilience: One Soul, One Sound”.

This month’s theme centers on the concept that Black history, culture, and music embody a tapestry of diversity and interconnection, rather than being a single narrative. The theme focuses on the value of fostering unity and solidarity among diverse cultural identities and highlights the role of music as a unifying force that bridges these varied experiences. This will be a time to not only acknowledge the contributions but to authentically express one’s own sense of Black joy.

If you have any questions, please contact CREDE Assistant Director Simone Royal at ( or (336)-278-7243.

Bryant Colson was the first Black student to serve as editor-in-chief of the Elon school paper, The Pendulum (1978); and the first Black student elected president of the Student Government Association (1979).
