Black History Month Programs at UW

Thursday, January 31st kicked off a series of events taking place at the University of Wyoming in honor of Black History Month.  The day featured the Black History 101 Mobile Museum on display in the Wyoming Union breezeway, and later the AHC partnered with the Art Museum, the Black Student Alliance, and African American Diaspora Studies to host a Meet & Greet for Khalid el-Hakim, founder and curator of the Mobile Museum.

Several students walk down a row of tables in the hallway of the student union viewing an exhibit on display.

We’d be remiss if we also didn’t give recognition to the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Days of Dialogue programs, which starts this Sunday. View the press release or visit their website for more information.
