Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements of black Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of African-Americans in U.S. History. Duke University School of Nursing (DUSON) has its own history in confronting racial issues. During the Fall of 1967, School of Nursing students joined others from across Duke for a sit-in to demand that student groups stop using University funds to patronize segregated facilities in Durham.
