Black History Month Event

Black History Month Event

02/24/2021 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Black History Month (February)

The History Department and Commemoration Committee invite you to a Black History Month event.

Join us Wednesday, February 24 at 12:30PM for a free virtual tour of the New-York Historical Society exhibit “Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow”.

Based on the New-York Historical Society’s 2018-19 exhibition, this virtual presentation explores Black Americans’ struggle for equality under the law from 1865 through World War I. Learn about both Southern and Northern roles in this dark chapter of our history as well as Black New Yorkers’ organizing and community-building in the face of discrimination.

This event is open to everyone in the CCM community. RSVP to commemoration@ccm.edu for the Zoom link, which will be provided the week of the event.
