Brazosport College began its celebration of Black History Month recently with a kickoff event that included food, games, dancing and fun.

Students, faculty and staff were treated to food from Michelle’s Cajun Shack and Full Plate Food Truck, while playing oversized games of Jenga and Connect Four. Participants also had an opportunity to enjoy a variety of other activities, including having a dancing video made in a 360-degree photo booth by Ah Huh Productions. In addition, the Willowridge High School Enchanting Wings Dance Team performed dance routines, while DJ Larro supplied the music.

The kickoff began an eventful month at Brazosport College, which will feature numerous educational and informative discussions about current and historical topics, an MLK poster and essay contest, and other activities.

Among the featured events will be a Black Identity Luncheon on Feb. 15 and a Black History Month Business Expo and Networking Social on Feb. 21. Both events are at the Dow Academic Center at Brazosport College and are open to the public. The luncheon will be from 11:15 a.m. to 1:30 and Latoya Hardman, Academic Dean at Lone Star College, will be the featured speaker. To request a ticket, visit
