AUGUSTA, Ga.- In recognition of Black History Month, Georgia Regents University will host various events inspired by America’s African-American heritage, including a Buffalo Soldiers horse demonstration, a screening of Hodges Usry’s The Steering Committee, and a presentation by the Urban Bush Women dance troupe.
