Facebook Pixel Black History Month | Western Kentucky University Skip to main content
WKU activities and events sponsored by ISEC, WKU offices, and student organizations.


The Intercultural Student Center, along with our black student organizations decided to collaborate on a calendar of events for the WKU campus community. Our goal is to make Black History Month, more than just a month! In the past, we have hosted events during Black History and a calendar, but never to this magnitude. A series of social, mental health, and academic programming dedicated to the black community will help to enhance this goal. Several of our African-American students have expressed that the WKU campus climate is not what they wish that it was. This will be a good first step to a community that supports all of our students. All of our organizations have collaborated on at least 20 events during a 6-week span. Several of our events will bring in people from not only the local community, but also the national community. President Caiboni reflects on the importance of campus and community collaboration, this Black History month will give us the chance to do so. We are committed to highlighting that Our Black Is.. powerful, unique, strong, timeless, and connected!
