Black History Month

Black History Month
Carrie Becher

Why do we have Black History Month and why should it matter to all of us? In this week’s video, members of the Black Student Union share the history of Black History Month and what it means to them. As Christians we believe that all mankind is created in God’s image and likeness and therefore everyone deserves dignity and respect. Dr. Cox, Director of Diversity and Inclusion, explains that this month is not just about looking back at the difficult times in history, but also celebrating the accomplishments of black Americans that have contributed to our country and have affected all of our lives. The Black Student Union’s challenge for the De Smet community this month is to find a way to commemorate Black History Month in a way that means something to each individual person. 

How will you be open to growth this month and celebrate Black History?  Watch the entire explanation here.
