Celebrating diverse groups and cultures 365 days a year
Submitted by Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging
Join us in celebrating diverse groups and cultures 365 days a year, starting with Black History 365's kick-off event, "Origin of Black History — Reasons to celebrate Black History 365," from 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Friday, Feb. 10, in the Morris Family Multicultural Student Center.
The logic behind Black History 365 is to recognize Black experiences in the United States, across the Manhattan community and at Kansas State University, in appreciation and recognition of the Black culture and their extraordinary contributions across the nation and around the world.
With a 365 mindset, we are able to transition dialogues beyond the single focus of February's Black History Month to empower students, administrators, faculty and staff to enhance cultural awareness across the university at any time, in any setting that offers an opportunity.
Through Black History 365, Kansas State University will observe and introduce the innovative accomplishments of Black people across the nation. From Kansas to Kentucky, from Florida to Maine to California — and all points in between. Events will continue to be announced in K-State Today, and participation is encouraged by all.
Additionally, please visit the Black History 365 book display on the second floor of Hale Library.
Watch for additional 365 celebrations this spring and summer: Women's History 365, Sexual Assault Awareness 365, Asian American and Pacific Islander 365, and LGBTQ+ Pride 365.
