UVA Students Celebrate Black History Month with Trivia Game

Posted: Updated:

Forget "Who Wants to be a Millionaire." Friday night, a group of University of Virginia students played a few rounds of "Who Wants to be Enlightened."

Students gathered for the game show event to celebrate black history month and test their black history knowledge. The game had four rounds, with categories ranging from history to sex and social issues.

Organizers say the goal is to educate and entertain.

"Well I think a lot of times America is taught mainstream culture. I think people of color whether it be black, brown, what have you, I think it's very important to recognize our contributions to this country," said organizer Atif Lanier.

This is the third year the event has been held at the university.
