Every year during Black History Month, California State University, Northridge hosts a wide array of events to honor the legacy and future of the black community. February’s events will be hosted by several departments and campus bodies.

“As we celebrate the successes and honor the struggles of people of black descent during Black History Month this February, we offer ways in which we visualize and give voice to our collective, healthy black futures — where we learn, thrive and have agency about our next steps,” said Department of Africana Studies Chair Theresa White. “Steps centered in black joy, creativity, political astuteness, love, healing and restorative justice.”
