Event Description:

Jerry Hunter, chancellor emeritus of the North Orange County Community College District, will discuss Black history from a personal perspective.

Integrating his personal experiences, he will facilitate an interactive discussion on the importance of Black history. This will include the role of African Americans in U.S. history, the impact of Black history on the multidimensional approach to the study of history, and its lingering effect on current events such as Black Lives Matter and the removal of Confederate monuments.
