Celebrating Black History Month

Hardin-Simmons University celebrated Black History Month by highlighting Black leaders in the community, sharing stories, and spotlighting student-led programming and organizations. 

HSU commenced the celebration of Black History Month by learning about abolitionist and social activist Harriett Tubman during back-to-back weeks of chapel.

HSU Proven hosted a movie night on February 15. The club provided snacks, drinks, and an enjoyable time while students watched Drumline. To stay up to date with other events hosted by Proven, follow them on Instagram.

On the final Tuesday of the month, chapel provided a stage for HScrU and Proven to share their talents with the campus. Following HScrU’s performance, Proven led the congregation in singing the Black National Anthem, Life Every Voice and Sing. Ian Nickerson, of Minda Street Church of Christ in Abilene, gave an exaltation. Nickerson is involved in mission work in the western region of Ghana, Africa, and is chairman of the board of directors for the community faith of Abilene.
