Georgia Regents University celebrates Black History Month

In honor of Black History Month, Georgia Regents University will host various events inspired by our country’s African-American heritage.

 This year’s theme, “A Century of Black Life, History and Culture,” speaks of an overview of the past century in which there has been a transformation in our society’s collective understanding of the role of African-Americans in this nation’s history.

This month’s events include  a panel discussion on the historic landmark case Brown v. Board of Education and musical presentation by the James Brown Academy of Musik Pupils.
