Join us monthly as we celebrate a different community on campus. UWL Celebration Months amplifies voices from the many vibrant cultures and communities on campus. Join us throughout the year as we celebrate our friends and neighbors and gain a deeper understanding of our community.

The purpose of this project is to give others on our campus, in the surrounding community, and anyone that visits the UWL website a chance to learn more about different experiences and perspectives of the community that we are celebrating on any given month.

Allies and advocates are invited to share their stories.

Black History Month

About Black History Month

Black History Month is an annual celebration of Black Americans and their outstanding contributions to the history of the United States. It reminds us how systems of oppression have stood in the way of progress, and inspires us to reflect on our responsibility to create positive change.
