SOLES Celebrates Black History Month: Student Spotlight with Marvens Pierre

A photo and quote from Marvens Pierre

As we wrap up our observance of Black History Month, Marvens Pierre reminds us all of the work that remains after the month is over. Marvens is a master's student in the Higher Education Leadership program at SOLES.

What do you hope is accomplished during the month of celebration and recognition?
I hope during this month people recognize the amount of work that is still left to do that exists beyond just celebrating one month for Black history. We need to actively still uphold anti-racist practices, unlearn anti-Black ideals, and challenge white supremacy beyond performative means.
