Black Futures Month is a shared vision of the trajectory for Black life on this campus and beyond. During the month of February, we are committed to remembering, celebrating, and learning from Black History. It is a time to acknowledge the Blackness is marginalized globally and work internally to center the marginalized identities within communities for true liberation from the lethal Western Strictures. History shows that Black people are more than what happened to them; on this campus, we are committed to continuing Black Excellence in the near and distant futures. The theme to look to the Future in celebration of African/African-American/Afro-Caribbean/Afro-Latinx/Afro/Black Diasporic peoples, embraces a mission of inclusion and to enhance the visibility of the diaspora at the intersections.
This year the WRRC brings you #BlackFemmeMagic Week: A Celebration of the Magic of Black Womxn and Femmes with a special event #BlackMagic with artist Francis Mead.
Programs are curated through collaborations between the Cross Cultural Center, WRRC and campus and community partners.
