Each year, Massasoit Community College celebrates Black History Month to recognize the extraordinary achievements and contributions of Black individuals and further share stories of the Black experience – especially in our communities.

Through events – performances, panels, speakers, screenings – we hope that everyone can walk away with a better understanding of the experiences of our Black friends, family, colleagues, and classmates.
