44 Days: Honoring Black History Month

5th Annual 44 Days: Power Pride Purpose

This year 44 Days: Honoring Black History 2022 celebration will take place February 9 - March 24. Our theme this year is “Power, Pride, and Purpose: How We Can Find and Use Our Power.”  It encompasses collaborating with stakeholders and community members by highlighting speakers, workshops, and other events that will take place during this celebratory 44 Days.  This will include the Black Student Convocation on Saturday, February 12, where our students will be assisting with planning a dynamic symposium that will take place throughout the day. We are also planning an everyday superheroes series, focusing on making black visible, standing in our individual and collective power, and strategizing survival and success in our 44 Days speaker series. Check out the events we have planned!

We are looking forward to celebrating with you!

A Message from Black Lives Matter Committee

We are honored to announce the 5th Annual 44 Days. In 2021, we were inundated with news about racial hate, climate catastrophes, economic hardship, and violent crimes. We enter 2022 with a renewed spirit of hope, optimism, and the will to persevere.
