Black History Month

Upcoming Events:

BBC@CSUF: Black Book Chat is an informal, virtual meetup hosted by the African American Studies department at Cal State Fullerton to explore a variety of nonfiction, poetry, and fiction books by Black authors. This book chat is dedicated to finding creative and community-based approaches to anti-racist theory and practice. You do not need to have read the book in advance to attend. We meet virtually the first Saturday of every month 10a-11:30am. Please contact Dr. Natalie J. Graham or follow @AFAMCSUF on Facebook for more information.
