MCLA recognizes and celebrates Black history in February and all year, and we are grateful for the contributions of our Black students, faculty members, and colleagues. The theme for Black History Month 2024 is "African Americans and the Arts". So MCLA will be offering a variety of opportunities for the MCLA community to celebrate Black History Month, and explore how the arts and expression can be used to share Black stories, heal, build community, and express joy and resistance.
Come and kick off Black History Month with a host of different black history month games and some appetizers.
Join the Women of Color Initiative (WOCI) for a fun session of mug decorating while celebrating the achievements of present-day Black and Brown women who embody the essence of the Women of Color Initiative.
Trivia is the best way to come and learn more about black history! We will have prizes, music, and food!
This program will explore best mental health practices that will better serve MCLA’s community of color. The goal is to dive into some good practices that we can do daily or weekly to recharge and refocus.
Come join the North Adams Public Library and MCLA's Femme Forward Coalition in honoring Black History Month and celebrating Black women! We will be watching the 2017 film, "Hidden Figures", sharing tasty movie snacks, and collecting resources to help us keep learning about, celebrating, and uplifting black voices!
