The idea of Black History 4 Seasons embodies the idea that Black History Month is more than a month and that Black history is America’s history. The Black History 4 Seasons Council will collaborate with faculty, staff and students to develop new academic, civic, and social programs and events that will occur throughout the year to pay tribute to the Black experience.
