Black History Month is a time to celebrate the fullness of African American history and culture. However, Black History Month cannot be contained in one month alone. Black history should be honored and celebrated every day. Black history is not a separate history. This is all our history; this is American history.
Please join us in celebrating Black History Month. We look forward to seeing you at our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Speaker and Movie Series. Please see the Hilbert College calendar for dates and times. We look forward to seeing you there!

Trade of enslaved Africans began in the 1400s with the Portuguese capture of 12 African men. Enslaved Africans were brought to the Americas by the Spanish in 1526. Between 1525 - 1866, 12.5 million Africans were forced from their homes and sold to the New World.
After slavery was abolished in the United States in 1865, laws at a state and local level, called Jim Crow, were established in the late 19th century, legalizing segregation. Black people could not use the same facilities, live in the same area or marry white people.
