Black History Month comes up in February, and Black United Students, along with other campus groups, are putting together a calendar of events to celebrate. Together with the Department of Pan-African Studies, Black United Students have planned a series of programs and activities celebrating African American heritage.

The events will help to educate members of the Kent State University community about African American heritage, promote inclusion and understanding of different cultures and enhance social and leadership development among student participants.

“As in the past, we want to be as inclusive as possible,” says Jason Washington Jr., president of Black United Students. “All student organizations, university departments, individuals and community representatives are encouraged to submit scheduled events and program dates to be included on the Black History Month calendar.”

To be listed on the calendar, provide the name of your organization/department and events or activities with times, locations and a brief description to Washington at jwashin8@kent.edu by Jan. 14.
