Black History Month at Linfield

Celebrating Black history at Linfield

To know Black history is to know world history

Every February, Linfield celebrates Black History Month with a series of events. We honor the unforgettable achievements of living pioneers and departed path-breakers – from advocates and educators to innovators and discoverers. Black History Month is an opportunity for all Americans to celebrate rich culture.
