Hampton University had several successful events on campus as part of its Black History Month celebration in February. Most events were student led and organized, and included State of the Black Man and State of the Black Woman panel discussions, a Black Expo featuring HU student entrepreneurs, and an African American Composers Concert.
Black History Month Chairperson Mark Landry said the month's events were an awesome representation of HU's ability to highlight key issues that have affected and continue to affect black history.
