During Black History Month in February, the Black Cultural Council of Odessa celebrates the history and culture of Black Americans in part by awarding scholarships to African American students, recognizing their contributions to the community and remembering the many significant contributions of Black Americans in general. The Council also annually hosts celebrations on MLK Day and Juneteenth.
“No student should be held back due to lack of educational funding,” the organization states. “Help us make sure that deserving students get the funding they need for a successful future.”
