My Black Is... Black History Month 2020

WKU’s minority student organizations and the Intercultural Student Engagement Center have collaborated on a calendar of events for the WKU campus community. Our goal is to make Black History Month more than just a month, and we need your support!   

Several of our African-American students have expressed that the WKU campus climate is not what they wish that it was. This will be a good first step towards a community that supports all of our students. We currently have 22 active minority student organizations on campus that are working on Black History Month 2020. 

    • President Caboni reflects on the importance of campus and community collaboration, and Black History Month will give us the chance to do so. This project is important because we owe it to our WKU community as a whole. 
    • We NEED YOU to help make this successful! We already have buy-in from several departments and organizations, and the next step is to secure alumni and community support! 

    Your gift to this campaign will support the: 
  • Opening Celebration: This event will be a celebration of rich culture and heritage! We are budgeting $2,000 to rent the venue, purchase refreshments and awards, and provide honorariums.
  • Black Unity Rally: WKU alumna Dr. Takeia Anthony will share words of encouragement at our Black Unity Rally, and students will march around the Hill. This event is budgeted at $1,000.
  • “Young, Black, & Gifted”: This event will highlight the importance of visual media and entertainment. This event is budgeted at $2,000 to rent the venue and provide catering. 

  • Please consider making a gift of:
    $19.56 = WKU admitted its first black student in 1956.

    $100.00 = 10% of the WKU population identifies as African-American.

    $200.20 = The Black Student Alliance was formed at WKU in 2002.
