Black History Committee

The HCC Black History Committee was created to provide college scholarships to African and African-American students attending Houston Community College.

Its signature event - the Black History Scholarship Gala - is held during Black History Month in February to celebrate the achievements of African-Americans locally and nationally.

A big thumbs up for State Senator Borris L. Miles. He has been one of the longest-running supporters of the HCC Black History Scholarship Gala, which took place Feb. 29. It's been 15 years and counting. We love you, Borris. Your support of our scholarship students has been truly remarkable.
