The Brown School is celebrating Black History Month in February with a series of video tributes to Black achievers and open classroom learning sessions.

Members of the university community contributed brief video tributes to explore well-known Black figures in history.

A series of open classroom discussions, which are free and open to the community, will explore topics including racism, history, entrepreneurship, the COVID-19 crisis and more. Session replays will be available on YouTube.

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history.

The national Black History Month 2021 theme, “Black Family: Representation, Identity and Diversity” explores the African diaspora and the spread of Black families across the United States.
