EAST STROUDSBURG — East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania is celebrating Black History Month with a series of events throughout February. This year’s theme, “The Beloved Community,” carries over from the 21st annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration Breakfast held at ESU in January. The idea of “The Beloved Community” was adopted by Dr. King as a vehicle for promoting his culturally transformative vision of unity, equality, justice and love. ESU’s historical legacy, culture, and increasing diversity has guided the theme into the events taking place this month. For more information contact Ly’Esha Fleming at firstname.lastname@example.org.
