Black History course.
Subject to Section 7 of the Board of Higher Education Act, every community college shall offer a course studying
the events of Black History, including the history of the African slave trade, slavery in America, and the vestiges of slavery in this country. These events shall include not only the
contributions made by individual African-Americans in government and in the
arts, humanities, and sciences to the economic, cultural, and political
development of the United States and Africa, but also the socio-economic
struggle that African-Americans experienced collectively in striving to
achieve fair and equal treatment under the laws of this nation. The
taking of this course shall constitute an affirmation by students of
their commitment to respect the dignity of all races and peoples and to
forever eschew every form of discrimination in their lives and careers.
A community college may meet the requirements of this Section by offering an online course.
