This celebration will kick off the 50th anniversary celebration for the UNO Department of Black Studies and honor the “Omaha 54,” the 54 students whose protests and arrests in 1969 led to the creation of the UNO Department of Black Studies. The Omaha 54 students or their descendants will be honored at the event, which will also include food, a historical display, and more.
We will be adding RSVP details and COVID precaution information to the UNO webpage.
