California community colleges are putting on events for the 2023 Black Student Success Week from April 24 to April 28.
This year's theme is "Vision to Action: Building Systems and Structures for Black Student Success."

There are many activities planned including daily virtual events and workshops. These webinar series for students are scheduled all week from Monday to Friday.
“The Black Hour” is a webinar series for students, faculty and staff from noon to 1 p.m. with discussion ranging from racial equitability in state policy to exploring the diverse intersectional identities of Black and African American students attending California community colleges.
