February marks the nation-wide celebration of Black History Month, and Sacramento State student organizations have planned more than 20 on-campus activities to honor African American culture, history and achievements.

This year’s theme, “Kujichagulia,” or “Self-Determination,” was created by a coalition of student organizations, including Africans for Reeducation, Innovation, Consciousness and Achievement (AFRICA). Sacramento State’s Multicultural Center and AFRICA will sponsor the opening reception for Black History Month 5 – 9 p.m. Friday, Feb.1 in the University Union’s Redwood Room. The opening reception will include refreshments and is open to the community.

An array of activities is scheduled for the month-long event and will include movies, lectures, performances and much more. A full calendar of events is available at Sacramento State’s Multicultural Center and Student Activities assisted student organizations in coordinating events.

“There’s a full range of activities, all of which are educational, some interactive,” Student Activities Program Advisor Karlos Santos-Coy says. “It’s a great opportunity for students to connect and to learn about our diversity and our shared experiences.”

For more information on events, visit the multicultural center’s events page at or call (916) 278-6101. For media assistance, contact Sacramento State Public Affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
