If you’re searching for spaces of solidarity in staying woke on campus, then check out the CSUF African American Resource Center to engage in community and build a sense of belonging. The African American Resource Center (AARC) is a home away from home and a visual presence on campus for the black community that promotes black excellence, black love, black boy joy, and black girl magic. Here are five AARC events to get involved and celebrate Black History Month.
