Attendees of the Black History Month "Black Lives Matter" EventEach year the Black Staff and Faculty Association (BSFA) celebrates Black History month -- this year’s event was bigger than ever with support and participation from area local schools, community and the university.

Activities included breakout sessions by Associate Vice Chancellor of Diversity & Inclusion (and Communication Professor) Brenda J. Allen titled "Communicating Race Matters" and Rachel Harding, Associate Professor of Ethnic Studies, presenting "Black Activism." Much of the success of this event is due to the efforts of longtime organizer Leslie Taylor, Administrative Assistant in CLAS Advising.
