Admiration and inspiration: Black History Month

Admiration+and+inspiration%3A+Black+History+Month

Black history has been buried for decades and washed away. However, Black history has made America, America. From the creation of the ice cream scoop to the invention of GPS, Black history is one to relish.
Black history has inspired many cultures, music, styles and languages, jokes and animation, superheroes, and religion, and as such, can be found in many aspects of modern culture today.
Black history studies here at the Richland campus of Dallas College have come and gone. At one point, African American Studies were offered in the curriculum. However, that ended in the fall of 2021. Courses such as African American History I and II are still available to students.
BSA was huge in assisting students in summer and fall registration and involved in the community, hosting games and bowling nights to let students meet each other.
BSA played a featured role in the youth voter rally featuring America Ferrera, Liza Koshy, and Alicia Keys in 2018.
One of their main focuses was getting in-formation out to students and the public. BSA put together a movie night screening of “13th,” an Oscar-nominated documentary on the history of race and criminal justice in the U.S. BSA members met with leaders from Paul Quinn College at the Second Annual African American Leadership Institute Policy Summit. BSA also supported Minority Student Success using data to effect change, supported the Richland Student Government Association in the Town Hall Series on Immigration Rights, and supported The Philosophy Club in its fundraisers.
BSA was big on domestic violence awareness, global Climate change, the opioid crisis and administering food to the public.
However, the Black Students Association became history as well in 2018. The BSA at the Richland campus is no more.
The Multicultural Affairs Team hosted an event for this upcoming Black History Month celebration, at the Richland Campus on Feb. 5.
This event will have honored African American artists for their creativity and talents in painting, sculptures, and music. An art exchange and a music-listening party will give proper credits where they are due.
