The evolution of Black History month


Originally conceived to encourage the teaching of African American history in schools, the observance of Black History Month is growing and evolving. There are celebrations of music and culture alongside conversations about systemic racism, microaggressions, and much more.
On The Point, we talk with Asher Hamilton about her vision to educate students and the greater community about our shared past, and how to inspire change for today and the future. And we hear what's on the schedule of Black History Month events at 4 C’s
Asher Hamilton is Student Engagement Coordinator at Cape Cod Community College
Lysetta Hurge Putnam also joins us on the program: she is Executive Director of Independence House and a panel member for the February 23rd discussion “Where Are Our Black Girls?
