28 Days of Honoring Black Excellence


by ABIGAIL SKAALERUD, CSU Public Relations Intern

For over ninety-three years now, Black History Month has been a major marker for the month of February. It is a month of remembering and honoring significant achievements and contributions made by African-Americans throughout history.

This year we decided to honor Black Americans by spotlighting two people on social media every day during the month of February. From Rosa Parks, an American activist in the civil rights movement, best known for the Montgomery Bus Boycott; all the way to Frederick Douglass, who was one of the first African-American NFL players in 1920, as well as the first African-American head coach in the NFL.

Besides social media being a platform to share the significance of Black History Month, our famous Tunesday in the CSU has been highlighting Black Americans such as Minnesota native, Prince, and others such as Beyonce and Michael Jackson. We have also been honoring the successes of Black Americans throughout the CSU on the big screens slideshow.

February will always be a month of honoring what Black Americans have done to better the United States, and that will be something to remember as long as time goes on.
