Throughout February, there are multiple ways to get involved in and celebrate Black History Month—whether through on-campus programming or events throughout Philadelphia.  

Entertainer Sammy Davis Jr. was featured on a panel during the Afro-American Arts Festival, sponsored by the Black Student Union, in March 1969.

From entertainers like Sammy Davis, Jr., and former U.S. president John F. Kennedy, to novelists, poets, and athletes, La Salle’s campus has welcomed an array of famous figures. Check out the University’s noteworthy guests, the latest in a feature series celebrating La Salle’s 160-year history.

Read a Q&A with alumnus and Trustee Brother Bob about life as (and after) his global leadership role with the Brothers.
