Black Heritage Month

Black Heritage Month

The mission of Black Heritage Month is to educate both the USF and Tampa Bay community on the importance of the history and significance of the Black culture. Black Heritage Month provides an educational atmosphere for students, staff, faculty, and alumni to celebrate and commemorate the contributions that the Black community has made to society.

BHM Committee

 



Our theme is "Sankofa: Incorporating our Past into the Present to Make Progress for the Future." The concept of Sankofa is derived from the Akan people of West Africa.

Ways to get involved: 

Attend an event on the BHM Calendar. Signature events are: Black Heritage Month Kick-Off and Sankofa Celebration (RSVP required). 

Nominate a Student Leader for a Black Heritage Month Student Spotlight. Help us showcase the many faces of Black Identity, experience, and excellence. You can connect with us and see all the spotlights by visiting our Facebook page.

Nominate a student for a Black Heritage Month Award which will be given out at the Sankofa Celebration.

 

San (return) Ko (go) Fa (look, seek and take)

"Sankofa" teaches us that we must go back to our roots in order to move forward. That is, we should reach back and gather the best of what our past has to teach us, so that we can achieve our full potential as we move forward.
