In honor of Black History Month, student organizations at the University of Alabama hosted an event for everyone Tuesday night. These organizations include the Alabama Student Association for Poetry, the Black Student Union, and the Capstone Association of Black Journalists.

The Blackout was a celebration in honor of black culture, and students said they believe the event is a great way for all students to unite and enjoy literature.

“My favorite thing is everyone being able to come together and just have a good time. I love poetry because you know I’m a member of Alabama Student Association for Poetry, but I just like seeing people be able to come together and enjoy art in general,” said Jeffrey Kelly, secretary of the Alabama Student Association for Poetry.

Kelly also said it is wonderful to see every race come together to embrace one another.
