Black History Month serves as an opportunity to reflect on the rich history and contributions of Black people in advancing civil and human rights for all. In honor of those contributions, Fielding Graduate University invites participation in a presentation by Dr. Lenneal Henderson as Carter G. Woodson, the inventor of Black History Month, providing a greater understanding of the origin and meaning of Black History Month. The presentation will be followed by a focused discussion on a key question of national interest, “Where do we go from here?”
Perhaps at no other time in our nation’s history does this question stand out as a poignant example of the challenges and existential threats within our body politique that threaten life, liberty, freedom, and human justice. The question posed is not a new one and, in keeping with the theme of Black History, was a crucial question raised by Dr. Martin Luther King about the work of the civil rights movement towards the end of his short life.
