February is the annual recognition of the 400-plus year history of African Americans in the United States. The month-long Black History Month celebration at Dallas College’s seven campuses includes events designed to reflect on the struggles and contributions African Americans have made to science, art, literature, politics and other facets of life.
But this year’s events, go beyond slavery, Reconstruction and the Civil Rights Act. Noted television journalist and host of “News One Now,” Roland Martin is the keynote speaker. He will discuss a renewed commitment to social justice issues as part of the struggle for equality in employment, housing, voting, education and other matters. “The Black Vote and the Future of Black America” takes place at 2 p.m., Feb. 24.
