    The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater invites you to join us for our Black History Month 2020 celebration.

    Focusing on Progress

    James R. Connor University Center
    Hamilton Room, 164

    UW-Whitewater pauses to recognize and celebrate Black History Month. The nation has adopted — and the university purposefully celebrates — February to honor and respect the accomplishments of African Americans and their contribution to American history.

    Focusing on progress is the overarching theme of this year’s Black History Month celebration. We are elated that Mandela Barnes, the lieutenant governor of the State of Wisconsin, will be our featured speaker. Understanding our history better situates us as a society to understand our past mistakes as we strive for a better nation.

    Complimentary parking is available in lots 12 and 14. Paid meter parking is available in lot 12A. View the campus map for directions.

    RSVP to Nicole Caine at cainen@uww.edu or 262-472-5669 by Friday, Feb. 14.
