A woman you do not know wants to join you for lunch. You are visiting her campus. In the café you both order the Caesar salad. This overlap is not the beginning of anything because she immediately points out that she, her father, her grandfather, and you, all attended the same college.
Black History Month
February is Black History Month, a time for a celebration of and reflection on the achievements of African Americans. Though the recognition and celebration of African American life, art, culture, and history should be sustained year-round, we take this essential time to reflect on, review, and revise the place of the African American experience in the national consciousness. Browse the list below for poems about the African American experience and find more resources on our Black History Month page.
