As the nation celebrates Black History Month, the University of Florida is also sharing the extraordinary voices that have vibrantly contributed to the institution’s excellence. Visit UF’s new Black History Month website for updates on events, details on campus initiatives and inspiring stories of the Black experience at UF.

Meet Jasmine McNealy, named one of the 100 brilliant women in AI ethics; rediscover The Growing Season with Lakisha Witter, a double-Gator, who is one of a small, but growing number of farmers of color in Minnesota; and in the video below, meet George Starke Jr., the first Black student to attend UF.
