Black History Month: A Legacy of Art Closing Celebration


- 7:00pm


VU 605 (VU Multi-Purpose Room)


Join us as we close out Black History Month, celebrating the legacy of Black art. Enjoy free services by local Black owned businesses, a photo shoot, a collective art piece, and Kulture Karaoke!

This year’s theme of “Back to B.L.A.C.K. A Legacy of Art," honors the creativity and beauty that members of the Black Community have contributed to our world. We explore how we can show up as our authentic selves, embody art, and encourage allies to create spaces where Blackness is not only centered but uplifted. Allies, we invite you into community, to learn what it means to be anti-racist and what your role and responsibility is in creating safer spaces for Black communities to thrive. We hope that you take the time to explore, reflect, understand, and celebrate the Black experience in the array of offerings during this month-long celebration.
