Black History Month 2019
Events for this year’s Black History Month (BHM) will feature a collection of programming and events from across the Texas A&M University campus. The 2022 BHM theme is “Black Health and Wellness,” as outlined by the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH).
The month will begin with three events, including the Black History Month Kick-off on Tuesday, Feb. 1, hosted by the Black Student Alliance Council (BSAC).
“This year’s theme explores the nuances of health and wellness in the Black community. Each organization is putting on something unique and (offers) a new chance for everyone to gain wisdom and understanding on topics that don’t normally get discussed related to the Black community,” said BSAC president Matthew Francis ’22. “Health isn’t just talking to the doctor, but also the spiritual, mental, emotional, and financial (aspects).”
BSAC will continue to provide event updates throughout the month. Black History Month sponsors include the Black Student Alliance Council (BSAC), the MSC Carter G. Woodson Black Awareness Committee (WBAC), and the Association of Former Students.
