Heritage Month Video Series

February is African-American History Month. Short videos are available to all University students, faculty, and staff highlighting how this month came to be. The videos also teach us about African Americans in US history that you’ll want to learn more about, if you haven’t already. Please join us in the Brave Space on Feb 15 at noon to watch the videos together. Feel free to bring your lunch as well as additional information about African Americans in US history that have inspired you. If you are interested in joining a group that is currently working on a project to collect stories of trailblazing African American nurses with historical ties to UMSN, please email me.
