UNMC Celebrates Black History Month: Next Week’s Events (Week 2)

Since 1976, each February has been host to a series of events recognizing the achievements and contributions of African Americans throughout U.S. history. It is as much a celebration as it is a time of education and reflection. Accordingly, UNMC has planned multiple events to share and commemorate African American culture. Check out the UNMC Newsroom’s post for full details and see below for an abbreviated summary of next week’s events.
