Be part of the Black and Latino Alumni Community and the Division of Africana Research for a Black Historical past Month digital occasion on Wednesday, February 24, from 7 pm to 9 pm.
Kamala Harris’ inauguration final month was a milestone — the manifestation of a metamorphosis that started within the current election cycle.
