Black History Month

Black History Month


Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion partners with the Black Student Association along with student organizations and departments across Texas Tech University to honor, advocate and educate the Red Raider community on the global black experience. This year the Black Student Association would like to present Funtunfunefu, Unity in diversity. As we kick off the month, we would like to recognize black people from around the world in order to unite together to celebrate Global black excellence. The symbol Funtufunefu represents cooperation and democracy among independent individuals. The symbol depicts two crocodiles who must work together in order to survive. We've chosen this symbol as a representation of the month to show that while we may be from different worlds, we must unite to understand each other's cultures and differences in order to keep our future bright. Programming is offered throughout the month to share global black excellence through celebration activities and educational workshops. Join us as we embrace our pasts to conquer our futures. Join us this year as we work to unite and embrace global black excellence.
