The purpose of Black History Month is for everyone to reflect upon the history, the legacies, and culture of people of African Heritage, but most of all this is a time of remembrance and appreciation of what African Americans have done for all people.
 
The Civil rights movement which benefited all under-represented minority groups, evolved from the aspirations of African Americans and the need for this population to be recognized and included as vital members of society.  In spite of this, the future that was envisioned by civil rights leaders and their communities has not materialized or reached a level of equity among these groups which is reflected in the ongoing institutionalized racism and discrimination that occurs in our society.
 
The events that have been planned at the UH Hilo will provide a cultural perspective and opportunity for the institution, faculty, staff and students to learn about the achievements of African Americans and the impact they have made in our lives.

Several events have been planned for the month of February at UH Hilo.

Taupōuri Tangarō has been named director of Hawaiian culture and protocols engagement for the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo andHawaiʻi Community College.

“The appointment of Dr. Tangarō to this important collaborative position shows the joint commitment of UH Hilo and Hawaiʻi Community College to Hawaiʻi Papa O Ke Ao, the systemwide plan for UH to become a model indigenous-serving institution,” said UH Hilo Chancellor Don Straney.

Tangarō received his bachelor of arts in Hawaiian studies from UH Hilo, his master in education from Heritage College, Washington and his doctor of philosophy in interdisciplinary studies from Union Institute and University, Ohio.

He is a professor of Hawaiian studies at Hawaiʻi CC and delivers the associate of arts degree in Hawaiian studies with a hula focus.

Tangarō serves as director of the Kauhale Academic Village, described as an ʻohana (family) of administrators, faculty, staff, students, their families and the Hawaiʻi Island community that contributes measurably to the success of Hawaiʻi CC’s mission and outcomes.

The Very Hungry Black Hole.
Jan. 15th, 7:00 p.m.@ ‘Imiloa Astronomy Center,

Scientists have determined that most galaxies have a black hole at their center, and in some galaxies this supermassive central black hole is fed by stars and gas. The nuclei of such galaxies are called Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN), and their histories are intertwined with the evolution of their host galaxies. In this talk, Petric will provide an introduction to the theory and observations that have built our current understanding of AGN. She will also discuss some recent findings about the evolutionary connections between star-forming galaxies and active black holes.

‘Imiloa Astronomy Center of Hawai‘i is located at 600 ‘Imiloa Place in Hilo, off Komohana and Nowelo Streets at the UH Hilo University Park of Science and Technology. For more information, visit the ‘Imiloa website or call (808) 932-8901.

Tickets cost $8 for Individual, Dual, Kupuna and Family Members; $6 for Patron Members; or free for Silver, Gold, and Corporate Members. Non-member rate is $10. Pre-purchase tickets at the ‘Imiloa front desk or by phone at 932-8901.
