Celebrating Black History Month

Wesleyan College is taking a moment to highlight some of our very own African American, Wesleyan pioneers.

Black History Month is observed every year in February. BHM marks a time to acknowledge the milestones we have achieved throughout history, celebrate the African American culture, and recognize all of the contributions made by the African American communities to our society.
