RICHLAND, WA- WSU Tri-Cities ended their celebration of black history month with a book reading "The Voyage of Mae Jemison."

Saturday WSU finished the month by focusing on an icon related to their Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics theme.

The students and community members listened while a Richland High School senior read to the group.

"It's to highlight.  It doesn't mean that Black History ends on the 28th or the 29th of February.  It's an opportunity to highlight some of the icons that we have in our black history," said Lorraine Wilson, with WSU Tri-Cities.

WSU said they are not done reaching out to the community.  All throughout March they will celebrate Women's History Month to engage and inform the community about women who have made an impact.
