February is Black History Month

Hennepin Technical College is proud to celebrate Black History Month

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. The 2022 theme is “Black Health and Wellness,” and acknowledges the legacy of not only Black scholars and medical practitioners in Western medicine, but also other ways of knowing (e.g., birth workers, Douglas, midwives, naturopaths, herbalists, etc.) throughout the African Diaspora.
