Black History MonthÂ (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 onÂ theÂ New-York Historical Society’sÂ 2018-19 exhibition, this virtual presentation exploresÂ BlackÂ Americans’ struggle for equality underÂ theÂ law from 1865 through World War I. Learn about both Southern and Northern rolesÂ inÂ this dark chapterÂ ofÂ our history as well asÂ BlackÂ New Yorkersâ€™ organizing and community-buildingÂ inÂ theÂ faceÂ ofÂ discrimination.
This event is open to everyone in the CCM community.Â RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom link, which will be provided the week of the event.
