Emory & Henry College will celebrate Black History Month with a series of events that will take place on campus during the month of February. The events are organized by the College’s Office of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion, which supports every student in finding their voice and in creating a positive impact at Emory & Henry College, in their own community and the world.
“We invite the community to join in the celebration of Black History Month,” says John Holloway, Vice President for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Emory & Henry College. “Black History Month is an acknowledgement of the achievements of African Americans and pays tribute to the many contributions made to this great nation. Each year this celebration increases awareness of a proud people, rich in their heritage, with faith as powerful as the grain of a mustard seed.”
