University of Lethbridge planning multiple events to recognize Black History Month

The University of Lethbridge is celebrating Black History Month under the themes ‘Black Excellence’ and ‘Black Flourishing.’
“By celebrating Black History Month, we live our commitment to recognize the contributions that have been made by our Black students, staff, and faculty at the University of Lethbridge,” says Dr. Mike Mahon, president, and vice-chancellor. “Thank you to everyone who has participated in putting this month’s events together.”
Executive Director of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, Martha Mathurin-Moe, says the month of February presents one opportunity to gain experience more about Black history and opens the door to further growth and understanding.
“Black History Month is more than the celebration of Black people one month out of the year. It is merely a starting point in recognizing the numerous contributions Black people continue to make to our communities, countries, and the world,” says Martha Mathurin-Moe. “For this Black History month, I encourage everyone, even after the month is over, to continue learning about the many scholars, innovators, cultural icons and activists who are pillars of Black Excellence and Flourishing in Canada and throughout the world.”
You can find information about planned Black History Month events on the University of Lethbridge website.
