February is National Black History Month, and it's a time when the National Society of Black Engineers comes into focus at the School of Mines and Technology. Two of that group's student representatives tell SDPB's Victoria Wicks that race relations have changed over the years, but not nearly enough. And they say South Dakota's overwhelmingly white population makes it a lonely place for them to live.

Rapid City freelancer Victoria L. Wicks has been producing news for SDPB since August 2007.
