In 1926, Carter G. Woodson laid the groundwork for Black History Month by establishing the first Negro History Week, an event dedicated to celebrating the history, politics, and culture of Black people.
This year, we are proud to continue this legacy in our chosen theme for Black History Month 2023: Remembering Our Roots. This theme embodies our commitment to studying Black culture and supporting Black people throughout history, recognizing the diversity and importance of Black experiences, narratives, and innovations.
Our schedule of events to commemorate Black History Month at Oberlin has been carefully curated to offer meaningful opportunities for engagement among all members of our campus and community.
