February is Black History Month, an annual celebration of the extraordinary achievements by black Americans as well as an acknowledgement of their vital and unique role in shaping U.S. history.
Please come visit our Black History Month exhibit on the first floor of the library. This exhibit features works from our extensive general collection that are by and about famous or notable black individuals, ranging from artists and activists to writers and revolutionaries.
This exhibit will be on display for the entire month of February. To learn more about Black History Month, please visit http://www.africanamericanhistorymonth.gov/.
