Welcome to Texas Southern University’s Black History Month 2022. Throughout February, TSU’s schools, colleges, departments, and others will host virtual and in-person events, sharing information and celebrating the accomplishments of Black Americans. Also, stay tuned to TSU social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn) for profiles of TSU faculty, alumni and other community leaders who have made a difference and continue to expand their unique legacy for future generations.
