UCSD celebrates Black History Month

UCSD is marking Black History Month with the theme “Breaking Down Barriers for Over 150 years” to champion the men and women who rallied around the cause of freedom.

Events this year will be amplified as part of the UC San Diego’s ongoing effort to enhance the campus climate and broaden the diversity of the campus community and curriculum, according to a press release.

In addition to signature events, such as the 9th Annual Scholarship Brunch and the Evening with the Stars, more events have been added, expanding the celebration into the month of March. 
           
In line with the 50th anniversary of UCSD, the events are also highlighting “Barrier Breakers” — staff, faculty and students who have forged a path for African American on the campus.
