February is Black History Month. This initiative to bring national attention to the contributions of Black/African American individuals throughout American history started in 1926. Dr. Carter G. Woodson chose the second week of February for this celebration because it marks the birthdays of two men who influenced the lives of Black/African Americans, Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln.
Grand View will have a Multicultural Fair on Wednesday, February 20, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Food, cultural booths, and entertainment will be in the Student Center. In addition, the Grand View Black Student Union will be hosting multiple events to raise awareness and there will be screenings of the film “Selma” sponsored by Vote Everywhere Program.
