Dallas Love Field Airport Celebrates Black History Month with Diverse Events

For the first time in an airport setting, Dallas Love Field (DAL) features a Divine 9 art installation, celebrating the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) comprising nine historically Black Greek-letter organizations. The exhibit, located between the TSA security screening checkpoint and baggage claim, showcases donated items from local NPHC members and runs through February 29, 2024.

On February 22, 2024, the Department of Aviation (DOA) will host a career development day at the Commemorative Air Force – Henry B. Tippie National Aviation Education Center. This event aims to support City of Dallas Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) graduates, Divine 9 members, and Black Employee Support Team (BEST) employees.

Further emphasizing education, DAS will present the inaugural "Leaps & Bounds" event at the Frontiers of Flight Museum on February 28, 2024, in collaboration with the Dallas Independent School District (DISD). This workshop will feature Captain Barrington Irving, a Guinness World Records holder and aviation trailblazer, engaging with DISD administrators, faculty, staff, and students.

Internally, DOA has scheduled employee engagements to commemorate Black History Month, reflecting the commitment to celebrating diversity and providing valuable educational opportunities. Rozalind Dickerson Cleaver, Airport Relations/Community Engagement Manager, emphasizes the importance of these events in fostering a culture of learning and inclusion at DAS.
