Black History Month kicked off at the University of Missouri–St. Louis with the 4th annual Soul Food Celebration in the Millennium Student Center 3rd floor rotunda. The theme for this year’s commemoration is “African Americans and the Vote.” The events, which are free and open to the public, range from voter registration to a black ballroom expo to a discussion with civil rights-leader Percy Green II.

This photograph was taken by UMSL photographer August Jennewein and is  the latest to be featured in Eye on UMSL.
