OGDEN — Black History Month 2024 is in full swing at Weber State University. The institution is celebrating the month with a number of special events putting a spotlight on the culture, experiences and contributions of African Americans.
“As February unfolds, we honor and celebrate the rich tapestry of African American history, resilience and contributions that have shaped our nation,” Maryan Shale, the program manager at Weber State’s Black Cultural Center, said in a release. “This month is an opportunity to recognize the powerful stories and achievements that often go unacknowledged. Let us come together for a month filled with engaging events, discussions and reflections that highlight the invaluable legacy of Black history.”
WSU rang in the month by providing an opportunity for people to represent their country with African heritage attire at the Black Cultural Center on Monday. Participants were invited to have their pictures taken for the Center for Belonging & Cultural Engagement’s Instagram.

Moving forward, WSU has the following additional activities scheduled in observance of Black History Month:
