Black History Month Black History Month


Black History Month is an annual observance in the United States. The event was first celebrated during a week in February in 1926. The celebration was expanded to a month in 1976, the nation's bicentennial. Carter G. Woodson selected February to encompass the birthdays of two great Americans who played a prominent role in shaping black history, namely Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass, whose birthdays are the 12 and the 14, respectively.

Durag and Bonnet Durag and Bonnet





















Event: Durags and Bonnets Fridays


Dates: February 4th ,11th ,18th ,25th


Time: All day


Location: All around Campus


Description: The idea generated from the want and desire to express self-care and self-love to Black men and women throughout the University. In the 90s and early 2000s, the durag became a fashion statement of Black pride, worn by rappers like 50 Cent and basketball players like Allen Iverson. And while the trendiness of the durag has worn off, it is now re-emerging as an act of self-love. In that vein of reclamation, various colleges are celebrating Durag Day, including the University of Texas at Austin, Morehouse College, Texas A&M, Florida A&M, and North Carolina A&T State University. ENMU Office of African American Affairs would like you to support this initiative.
