Black History Month

World War 2 era naval posterFebruary is celebrated as Black History Month. It is reported that Black History Month was first celebrated in the U.S. in 1926 through the efforts of African American historian Carter G. Woodson.

African American literature has gone through many periods. At the Library of Congress web site you can listen to Slave Narratives or view original documents that are part of the African American Odyssey. At your hometown libraries you can experience legendary African American thinkers and writers, such as, Frederick Douglass, Ralph Ellison, Zora Neale Hurston, Langston Hughes, Richard Wright, Alice Walker, Alex Haley and so many more.

Your hometown libraries are offering events this month which focus on African American history and cultural experiences. Visit our calendar for more information.
