Southern University at Shreveport Announces Its 2023 Black History Month Events

Shreveport, LA – Southern University at Shreveport (SUSLA) announces its lineup of events for Black History Month. Black History Month is each February and marks a time to observe and commemorate the history of the African-American diaspora in the United States. This year’s theme is “Black Resistance.”

Among this year’s numerous events are "The Montgomery Bus Boycott Staged Reading” at the Bossier Arts Council, SUSLA’s 55th Anniversary Documentary Screening, “Black Resistance Through Song - A Spiritual Program Honoring Mahalia Jackson” with performances by Professors Sherman Houston and Brenda Wimberly, and a red-carpet screening of the film “Selma” with a diversity panel discussion at the Robinson Film Center.

Additionally, the community can experience “KICK’n’ It for Brunch” at our Milam Street Kitchen Incubator (MS KICK), a small business expo, and a kick-off exhibition at the Southern University Museum of Art Shreveport (SUMAS).

Most events are free, and most are open to the public – an excellent opportunity for the community to experience in person the many facets of SUSLA while celebrating Black history.
