Hampton University Five year MBA Major Randolph Scott Jr. is this year's Black History Month Chairperson. Scott, also director of the Student Government Association (SGA) Men's Caucus, said the month is an opportunity for the HU campus and the community to come together and genuinely reflect on black history, as well as the significant contributions made by African-Americans that shape our world today. Visit news.hamptonu.edu in February for a listing of the month's events.


What is the theme for this year's Black History Month?
This year's theme is "The Hillman Project: It's A Different World."

Why did you want to become the Black History Month chairperson?
I became the chairperson for Black History Month because I wanted to have a direct role in the development of the activities that would take place.

What are your goals for the month?
My goals are to promote the relevancy of African American history to the student body, through various interactive outlets. Through the events of the month, the students should receive an astonishing sense of pride and be educationally uplifted.

What do you want the campus community to get from the events?
I believe that the biggest lesson for all races during Black History Month is the realization that our history isn't entirely conformed to just one month. Black history is something that is always present, and should be embraced in every aspect of life.
