Dozens of Wright State University students, faculty and staff attended the first Black History Month Celebration event in the Student Union Endeavour Room on Feb. 26.
The celebration brunch included guest speakers and friendly conversation. Tonya Mathis, diversity program manager at the Boonshoft School of Medicine, and Nicole Carter, director of the Wright State Women’s Center, both spoke at the event.
“Students, faculty and staff have an opportunity to learn more about our black historians and the descendants,” said Mathis.
The celebration also recognized students and faculty who have pushed inclusive excellence over the past year.
“I hope the participants take away a sense of community,” said Kevin Jones, a senior majoring in political science.
The Black Student Union, Black Men on the Move, Office of Equity and Inclusion and the Student Government Association organized the event.
