PITTSBURG, Kan. – The Black Student Association at PSU is hosting events to raise awareness during Black History Month in February.
On February 1st, they have a blackout photo booth that students can use to take their pictures.
They’ll be hosting other events like an MLK ball, quiz night, and learning the story behind gospel music.
Organizers say this is a way to teach students history and other important black historical figures.
Kyle Carr, Psu Black Student Association, says, “A lot of people probably look back and remember that we’d hear from Harriet Tubman and Martin Luther King Jr. And they have done a lot for black Americans in the United States, but there are so many other hidden characters that are so overlooked and not discussed and often forgotten by time and history. “
The events are free for PSU students and can register here.
