2021 Black History Month Celebration
United for Justice: Lighting the Path Forward
The events of 2020 have brought the continued struggle of African Americans to obtain true equality and justice to the forefront of our nation’s conscience. What remains evident and became magnified is the need to sustain advocacy for lasting structural changes in oppressive systems. These changes will lead us to a new path forward that will ensure liberty and justice is for all. Join the James Farmer Multicultural Center as we share the stories of tragedy and triumph of African Americans in this nation.
