Celebrate Black History Month with Pacific

February 6, 2012

Tags: 2012, Student Life

University of the Pacific's annual Black History Month celebration involves a number of activities that honor the history and heritage of African-Americans and the African Diaspora.

Throughout the month of February 2012, students, faculty and staff put on numerous events, including a gospel concert, poetry reading, financial aid workshop, roundtable discussions and various guest lecturers.

This year's theme is Black Women in American History and Culture. In support of that theme, Grammy-award winning singer, songwriter and producer India.Arie will give a lecture and performance for the month's keynote event. The Neo Soul/R&B singer is known for her soulful music, which has empowered an endless number of women and girls. She is also a human rights activist who has worked to bring attention to and end the AIDS crisis in Africa.
