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.
Programs are curated through collaborations between the WRRC and campus and community partners. If you are interested in having a program or event featured on the calendar during Black Futures Month, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
