Acalanes Union High School District is proud to celebrate Black History Month, not only to highlight the incredible contributions and successes African American and Black individuals have had in our community and nation, but also to highlight the struggles African American and Black individuals have faced and continue to face; as well as the work that lies ahead for all of us to make our communities more inclusive, just, and equal.
Celebrating 28 days of Black Excellence
The slideshow above has been curated by the Black Student Union students from all AUHSD schools. The slideshow will be updated each week to commemorate individuals and events that showcase Black contributions to our society.
Below are some of the events happening in our District.
