SAN MARCOS – For the third year, educators and students from Palomar College and around the country are exploring the history and creativity of Black History Month with a series of workshops available on Zoom and in person at the College’s San Marcos campus.
“To be able to offer this many workshops and have this much collaboration is just monumental,” said Amber Colbert, assistant professor of sociology and founder of the Palomar Black Faculty and Staff Association, which is hosting the events.
“It’s a way to expose everyone, regardless of race, to the history of Black America that has led us to today – and to issues happening right now,” said Colbert. “It’s America’s history, it’s Black history, and I’m glad that Palomar and the PBFSA are able to provide these workshops.”
“It is inspiring to see so many dedicated and talented educators coming together to provide our students and community with inspiring, informative Black History workshops,” said Palomar Superintendent/President Dr. Star Rivera-Lacey. “We encourage everyone to join us in learning and imagining a stronger, more inclusive future.”
The series will conclude with a barbecue and fundraiser at Mesa Rim Climbing Center in San Marcos. For more information about the workshops, including biographies of the presenters, visit http://www.palomar.edu/pbfsa/black-history-month-2023-workshop-series/.
