LGBTQ Faculty & Staff Organization. Graduate students are welcome to join.

The Stories of Everyday Black History program will provide an intimate glimpse into the experiences Black faculty, staff, and students at UGA. While traditional Black History Month celebrations are heavily focused on the ways in which the martyrs, trailblazers, and icons influenced the trajectory of the Black experience in America, the Stories of Everyday Black History will honor and give voice to the experiences and histories of present-day influential Black faculty and staff on campus. In acknowledging their contributions to the campus community and providing a platform on which they share their personal history, MSP hopes to broaden the conversations during Black History Month.

The goal of this program is to encourage dialogue, to connect with Black faculty, staff, and students in a less formal, more conversational setting, and to build a sense of community across experience and identities.
