BHM Celebrating Black Culture, Community and History

During Black History Month, we joyfully celebrated the richness of black culture, community, and history by organizing a special screening of "The Space Race: The Untold Story of Black Astronauts" in partnership with UCI; National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), Nigerian Student Association (NSA), Black Student Union (BSU), Institute of Black Intellectual Innovation (IBII), National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. - Orange County (NCBWOC), and BIPOC Orange County (Black, Indigenous, and people of color).

To commemorate our resilience, we hosted the BLOOM TOGETHER BAR, where the community was "given their flowers" along with complimentary popcorn, candy, and drinks from our partners at IBII.

We also participated in  community events such as the 44th Annual Orange County Black History Parade, presented by the Orange County Heritage Council, and the Black Chamber of Orange County Future Leaders Luncheon
