Black History Month 365

BHM365 provides year-round programming with a special emphasis during Black History Month (BHM). Programming in 2020 was sponsored by several groups, including the Black Students Collective (BSC), Black MBA Students Association, the Ethnic Studies Program in the Department of Race, Gender and Sexuality Studies Department, the Black Faculty and Staff Association, Alumnae of Color, We Are the Voices, and the Associated Students of Mills College.

Our Mills College Black History Month takes place each February and is sponsored by the Ethnic Studies Program in the Department of Race, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and the Associated Students of Mills College. BHM events are organized by a committee of students faculty and staff. In 2021, we are looking forward to BHM events, which may include online events, given the Bay Area's COVID-19 shelter-in-place order.
