Black Culture Awareness Week originated in 1992 with a proclamation by Columbia Mayor Mary Anne McCollum. The week’s events provide MU students and the Columbia community with insight into black culture and history.
The 2015 events, held Nov. 1-6, included a film screening, community discussions and lectures, the seventh annual Play the Part show, and a visit from Hazelwood West High School students.
