Pair of events celebrate Black History on campus

Students listen to stories of some of Black History's Giants

PC Student Life Celebrated Black History Month with a duo of events for students. The first was an event celebrating culture through art. Students gathered in the SCCR to create beautiful cultural "hearts and crafts" featuring skin-toned yarn and hearts to create some exciting pieces.


The second event celebrated some of the "Giants" of African American history. These giants made advancements in everything from civil rights to music and science. During the event, we celebrated this collection of unique individuals, who we celebrate not only during Black History Month but also in all of American history for their positive changes.


CSUB Director of Student Access & Support, Darius G. Riggins, joined students in the SCCR to present "Standing on the Shoulders of Giants." He discussed a long list of some of the most influential people in American history. These African American leaders broke racial barriers and made contributions beyond themselves so others could soar.
