Black History Month - International Centre Events

International Student Panel on Black History Month
February 17 | 2 -3 p.m. | Zoom

February is Black History Month! What started as a week-long commemoration in 1916, has bloomed into a month-long celebration to honour the legacy of Black people and their communities.

uLethbridge is pleased to be hosting a full month of events to commemorate Black History Month, and the International Centre is hosting a student panel as part of the celebrations. Mark your calendars and register to hear about the stories and experiences of some of our Black students at the University of Lethbridge!
