A Black History Month Program

The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is hosting a series of events for Black History Month in the Lane Center Atkinson Room (232) every Monday this month. Each of the events is open to all FSU students, faculty, and staff. Today's theme is,  “We Struggled, We Survived, We Succeeded”.

This program is offered in the hybrid format.

Lane Center Atkinson Room (room 232)
7:00 p.m. (refreshments will be served)
or you can join in virtually (see your FSU email).

This President’s Day event will outline the progression of Black people in the U. S. from enslavement to the present day. Included will be power moves within the Black community, celebrating the first Black doctors, politicians, dancers, educators, cooks and more. There will be learning opportunities for students to increase their knowledge of voting and politics, the importance of being an ally to fellow Black/POC students, civil rights and protesting. 

Included in this day’s events is motivational speaker Rasheed Ali Cromwell. Cromwell will discuss the significance of protesting for peace and change as student leaders. Students will leave this discussion understanding how to manifest change, clarifying the narrative of the movement, and using technology to infuse the civil rights movement with social media.
