The Aretha Franklin tribute was one of several Black History Month events in February. 

The free event was hosted by Delta’s African American Employees Council (AAEC) and Cultural Awareness Program, alongside University of Pacific.

“Black History Month is important to me because it allows me to give back and I love giving back to the students,” AAEC President James Forte said.

More events are planned.

Delta will hold the annual Chicken and Waffle Fundraiser on Feb. 21 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.  in Upper Danner Hall. 

The Tuskegee Airmen presentation will take place on Feb. 26 from 12:30 to 2 p.m. in Room 273 of the Science and Math Building.

The Pride Center is hosting a showing of “Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin” on Feb. 26 at 1:30 p.m. It’s part of a discussion titled “Black & Gay in the Civil Rights Movement.”
