Contributions from KSU alumni might be overlooked, or even unknown, by many, but our community and school are both rich with their histories. Black History Month is a time for people of all colors to come together to honor black individuals for their service and efforts towards the progress of this university and beyond.
During February, Thorobred News will be recognizing the scholars, athletes, activists, and artists who have influenced the communities in which they lived, worked, and studied. These leaders and their accomplishments are worthy of a celebration that lasts a lifetime, rather than the month that has been designated as Black History Month. As Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) it is not only our right, but our responsibility to shed a light on those African Americans, who have paved a way for all of us. These notable Thorobreds have all served in their communities to further the development of not only black people, but all people.
