DULUTH, MN-- Families gathered at Denfeld High School Thursday afternoon to celebrate Black History Month.
Several groups worked together to organize the event, including the high school and the Black Student Association.
The school said it's a chance to connect and engage with families that might sometimes feel left out.
Victor Williams, the head student with the Denfeld BSA, said the event is one way to show black students and families they have a place to belong.
"Make them feel like they're a group of something because we live in a state, or a city that is predominantly white and a lot of black people don't get to feel like they're part of something bigger than themselves," said Williams.
The event was part of the Myers-Wilkins family night program.
