Black History Month Debate

Sociologist and Associate Provost Sarah Willie responds to a recent poll questioning the relevance and significance of Black History Month. "When I say I'm a critic, I just mean that I want Black History Month to go further," says Willie, whose research interests include social inequality, higher education, and African American culture. "It's very relevant and I'm looking forward to black history, black sociology, black psychology, and black literature and the arts studied all year long."
