Celebration of Black History

February 17, 2023
on the Lambert Road Campus

February marks Black History Month, a time to celebrate Black Excellence, a term used to describe the individual contributions, perseverance, achievements, and successes of the Black community. The 2023 theme for Black History Month, set by the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH), is Black Resistance.

This year, the Institute honored Black History Month through our landmark event “Celebration of Black History” on February 17 at our Lambert Road campus.  The event programme recognized Pacifica’s and our local community’s leaders who exemplify Black Excellence.
