Black History 2014

Georgia Regents University celebrates Black History Month

Black History 2014In recognition of Black History Month, Georgia Regents University will host various events inspired by America’s African-American heritage, including a Buffalo Soldiers horse demonstration, a screening of Hodges Usry’s “The Steering Committee,” and a presentation by the Urban Bush Women dance troupe.

This year’s theme is The Golden Jubilee of the Civil Rights Act which commemorates the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Civil Rights Act that effectively outlawed forms of discrimination against African-Americans and women.
