He hopes what they learn during Black History Month is that "we're all still humans, we're all still Americans.no matter the color, the race, where you are from", Turner said.

The Live Museum also highlighted the lives of African Americans during that decade with displays and videos of popular shows and films.

Throughout the performance, the audience can expect to hear from significant figures in African-American history like Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Maya Angelou and Barack Obama.

Ulster County is rich with African American history, from recognizing the legacy abolitionist Sojourner Truth taking her reflective walks down Huguenot Street in New Paltz, to remembering the implications of the intricate underground passageways in uptown Kingston that were part of the Underground Railroad for freedom. There is a reliance on force that goes beyond what is necessary to accomplish police duty.

Black History Month would not exist if it wasn't for Carter G. Woodson, "the Father of Black History".

Autobiographies and first-hand accounts of those horrors from freed slaves such as Frederick Douglass and Solomon Northup published during the 19th century were vital in helping shift the American perception of slavery. "If we are a feminist group, you don't want to only have those people who feel like they're feminists in that room". Woodson was just the second black man to earn a Ph.D. from Harvard, and believed that documenting the history and achievements of black people was essential in dispelling myths of inferiority and creating self-worth for African-Americans. The Black Project brings this and more to UWG through the events they will host throughout the month. We need to make sure that people who are marginalized are within history.

February 11, will feature a screening of a film which "chronicles the US tour of a group of Black lesbian poets and musicians, who become present-day stewards of a historical movement to build community among queer women of color", according to the event's website. "It's only been since 1976 that black history month was actually a holiday, and now it's celebrated across the whole country".

"We think about just certain leaders in the black community but (do not) really learn about the true history and the various and important contributions that the black community has given to the USA and in a more global context", Garcia-Pusateri said. "It really ties into social studies because you're talking about history, the civil rights movement and all kinds of things that tie in with actual content they need to learn, so it's ideal. We acknowledge that this was not the outcome that was anticipated, and we apologize if the activity offended anyone", he said. "Ultimately that's what I think these celebrations are about - coming together".
