How Carolina Celebrates Black History Month!
With February being Black History Month, now is the perfect time to explore how the UNC community is committed to supporting a diverse and inclusive campus. We hope you’ll consider joining us in celebrating African American history and culture through the variety of events offered throughout the month.
Although we have these special events for February, our incredible student groups, faculty, and staff make honoring African American history and diversity a focal point of campus year-round. Here’s a brief list of some of the ways you can get involved with the African American community on campus:
- Black Student Movement: one of the largest student groups at UNC, serving as a voice for black students on campus and promoting black culture.
- Harmonyx: an a cappella group and subgroup of BSM, singing R&B, hip hop, and gospel music with a goal of spreading unity and diversity.
- Black Ink: campus magazine that serves as an outlet for African American students to write about issues facing the black and overall Carolina communities.
- Carolina R.I.S.E: connects self-identified minority students with mentors and networks to succeed on campus and in their intended careers.
- Carolina MALES: collaborates with University resources to advocate for the academic and social success of minority men on campus.
This is just a snapshot of the diversity that will help you learn and grow should you choose to come to Carolina. We wish you all the best as you prepare for college.
