Black History Month: Law School Events

February 1 marked the beginning of Black History Month in the United States. The theme for 2015 is “A Century of Black Life, History, and Culture” (http://asalh100.org/black-history-themes/2015-theme/). The Oklahoma City University School of Law’s Black Law Students Association has organized four events during the month that provide opportunities to engage in and learn about African-American culture and history:
