By University Staff

February 2016 marks the 40th anniversary of the first observance of Black History Month. While African-American history is sewn deeply into the fabric of American history, the month is seen as an opportunity to reflect on the country’s past and the progress of African-Americans, as well as to advocate for change and challenge racial injustice that still exists in the United States.

“For me, personally, Black History Month is an opportunity for me to draw strength upon those who’ve come before me, who have fought the good fight,” according to the University of Arizona Global Campus Access and Wellness Counselor, Dr. Jason Allen.


Allen spoke with Promoting Access and Wellness in Students (PAWS) about his efforts to help young African-Americans set educational goals, and how current movements such as Black Lives Matter play a role in black history. In this video, you’ll hear why he believes conflict can lead to growth.
