Black History Month

We welcome you to attend all of our sponsored events to celebrate the legacy of the Black community here at UR and around the globe. It is our mission that, through these events, the campus community will become more familiar with the history of African Americans at UR, in Virginia, and the rise from slavery to Black excellence. We hope to properly convey the story as well as shed light on a history that is more than slavery but a rich culture that has contributed to the evolution of our country.
