Black History Month is a time to reflect on the past but also a time to focus on the impact our actions currently have on the present and look toward the future. Values like resiliency, optimism and spirituality are woven into African American history but are very much a part of our culture today.
So in honor of Black History Month, we invite you take out your fancy clothes and join us in celebrating BGSU students and organizations who embody these values and are an inspiration for the next generation to learn from.
