The theme of this year’s Black History Month celebration at Missouri State University is “Black Excellence.”
The university invites the campus and larger community to participate in events that not only focus on Western culture’s perception of blackness, but are inclusive to all who identify as black.
The Sankofa: Black History Month Banquet is dedicated to Black excellence and culture. A full dinner will be provided, along with entertainment. The event begins at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 22 in the Plaster Student Union (PSU). Student admission is free. Faculty, staff and community member admission is $10. Cash payments are accepted at the door.
Other events for the month include:
Women’s Forum, 6 p.m., PSU 400
ABC’s Colorism Forum, 7 p.m., PSU 313
Damon Davis Presentation, 7 p.m., PSU Theater
