Annual Events


Black History Month  


 

In the United States, Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by black Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of African Americans in U.S. history. The event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating black history.

The Center offers a variety of activities throughout Black History Month ranging from one-man shows to craft fairs. Event times and locations vary.

Open-Mic Night that gives students the opportunity to express themselves through words, sounds, and rhythm. The first Peay Soup takes place at Party on the Plaza during Welcome Week, in the Fall semester where students enjoy food, door prizes, and a live deejay. The last Peay Soup of the school year is a spoken-word competition (poetry, rap, song) that serves as a culmination for all of the events.

In observance of the Women's History month, the Wilbur N. Daniel African American Cultural Center hosts the annual Purses and Pleasantries Tea Talk Event.

 We Are Family


'We Are Family" began in 1996. The essence of the program is to convey to all APSU students, parents, faculty and staff that we should consider ourselves as members of one "family" as we move throughout our individual purposes for being at Austin Peay State University. 

 This event takes place once a semester, and is sometimes modified to celebrate our graduating students' achievements.
