This Student Event is for General Public


February is Black History Month and the QCC Student Government is hosting the Black Inventions Exhibit (BIE) on Tuesday, February 11th from 10am-5pm in the Student Union Lounge. This is a multimedia presentation, which pays tribute to Black inventors and innovators. The exhibit will reveal many surprising facts, and highlights the accomplishments of Blacks in the fields of Science, Aerospace Communication, Health Care, Agriculture, Transportation, and Engineering. The aim of BIE is not only to give credit to the inventors, but to inspire others to believe that anything is possible. Over 150 authentic artifacts are represented in the collection and include: Patent designs, personal letters, rare photographs, brief biographies of Black American inventors and video documentaries.

This exhibit is free for all students, faculty, and staff to attend.
