UACCM celebrates Black History Month with Daniel Omotosho Black

The primary two displays can be seen in the entrances to the Business Technology Center and the University Center. UACCM will also be presenting a guest speaker, Daniel Omotosho Black, Ph.D., at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 28, in the UACCM Fine Arts Auditorium.

Black is a native of Kansas City, Kansas, yet spent the majority of his childhood years in Blackwell, Arkansas.  He was awarded the Oxford Modern British Studies scholarship and studied abroad at Oxford University, Oxford, England.

Upon graduation from Clark College (magma cum laude in 1988), he was granted a full graduate fellowship to Temple University in pursuit of a Ph.D. in African American Studies.

As a tenured associate professor, he now aims to provide an example to young African Americans of the importance of self-knowledge and communal commitment.

Admission to Dr. Black’s presentation is free and open to the public.
