SUA celebrates Black History Month in February!

Black History Month is an annual observance originating in the United States, where it is also known as African-American History Month. It has received official recognition from governments in the United States and Canada, and more recently has been observed in Ireland, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. Throughout the month our Sisters in Cultural Unity organization (SICU) and Hand Across Campus organization will host programs and weekly announcements in February.

Did you know?  Diane Holloway Curtis '66 was the first African American student to attend and graduate from Saint Ursula Academy.

Here are some links that host sites, events, documentaries, and digital shorts that highlight the richness of the Black experience in American history.
