Black History Month has been celebrated annually in February since 1976 and celebrates African American

achievements and recognizes the central role of African Americans in United States History. The St. Charles

Community College’s African American Faculty & Staff Association (AAFSA), the SCC Library (LRC), and the Office of Student Life

wants to recognize Black History Month and will be holding several themed events Feb. 6 - 28.

Erica R. Williams (Executive Director of A Red Circle) will discuss the journey she took due to the civil unrest that occurred in Ferguson, Missouri. In reaction to protests, riots, and the fatal shooting of Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, 2014, she created a not-for-profit organization that specifically focuses on addressing the racial disparities and economic inequities that exist in North County.  The organization attempts to reverse the impact of racism and economic segregation by focusing on five (5) key areas (employment, education, holistic living, policy, and the arts). Ms. Williams will explain her accomplishments over the last five years, and she will discuss ways for others to get involved.
