Black History Month Gala


As Black History month comes to a close, the Black Cultural Programming Committee seeks to acknowledge the accomplishments and achievements of students of color. BCPC will host this event in collaboration with Diva Opal's and Phi Beta Sigma's African-American Image Awards. The Black History Month Gala will also feature a keynote address by Diane Nash, one of the pioneers of the Civil Rights Movement. One of the pioneers of the Civil Rights Movement, Diane Nash helped form the Nashville Student Movement, which aimed to desegregate the city's lunch counters, and coordinated the Freedom Ride from Birmingham, Alabama, to Jackson, Mississippi. Most recently, her work was featured in the PBS American Experience film Freedom Riders
