Black History Month at Carolina

Carolina is celebrating Black History Month with a wide variety of activities, and the entire campus is involved. The Black Student Movement will start off the festivities with a kickoff on February 1. UNC Dining Services will feature a month of themed cuisine — from African to Creole to homestyle southern — that will culminate in a Black History Month celebration dinner on February 27.

Student Stores is offering 20% off all books in the African American Studies section and 20% off all fiction books by African American authors for the entire month. If you would rather watch than read, head over to Paul Green Theater to catch Lorraine Hansberry’s legendary play, "A Raisin in the Sun." And the Stone Center will host a reception on February 7 for Los Angeles artist Toni Scott’s exhibit, "Bloodlines."

Other Black History Month activities include a forum on the roles of African American men and women, a lunch and movie series, and a feature on African sky legends at Morehead Planetarium. Follow UNC Black History Month on Twitter for the most up-to-date information.
