“I think it’s great and there should be more information and more activities to celebrate because of the lack of information that we have. It’s a month to explore and to teach other cultures about black heritage,” said Andrea Giger, sophomore human resource management student.
“It definitely means a lot to me. It’s a month where we educate people on what Black people have been through these past hundreds of years. It’s important because we still go through a fraction of it. It gives people a chance to be educated about Black History Month. There should always be one,” said Devonta Glass, junior music performance major.
“I feel neutral about it. The uprising in the past was kind of great because it changed things for the better. I’m glad it happened. It symbolizes where African Americans were at and how far they have come,” said Kelsey Niezgodski, sophomore liberal arts and science major with a concentration in biology.
“It should be celebrated through all of history, not just in a month. But I like that it is focused, and a lot of important people are referenced,” said Matt LeMastes, senior English major.
“There is nothing wrong with celebrating and being proud of your race as well as educating yourself and other heritages and cultures. Celebrating Black History Month honors historic leaders and reminds us that black history is our history,” said Taylor Wesley, freshman studying business entrepreneurship. Wesley also plays women’s basketball.
