For Black Heritage Month, Temple University’s Department of African-American Studies has a full calendar of scheduled events.
Ranging from visual displays to movies and lectures, the department hopes to foster a deeper understanding of black history and culture.
University fellow, Yaba Blay, feels the month long celebration will give a “well rounded perspective”of African-American history and raise awareness of lesser known, yet extraordinary African-American figures of the past.
Anyone interested in attending the events can pick up a calendar from the Department of African-American Studies or keep an eye open for flyers around campus advertising the events.
