Black History Month

The Sullivan Library and Learning Resource Center commemorates Black History Month with a book display featuring items from our collection, with posters of African-Americans from Kentucky. Please ask one of the librarians if you want to check out one of the books in the display, if you need more information about Black History Month, or if you want to find some other books about African-Americans that are in our collection. We will be happy to assist you.

Also, the February issue of Ebony magazine has an article featuring descendants of famous African-Americans. The article is titled, “Descended from Greatness.” The January issue of Young Children has an article about African-Americans in children’s literature, “From Thunder Rose to When Marian Sang. . . Behold the Power of African-American Female Characters,” and the library has some of the titles featured in the article. Both of these magazines can be found in the periodicals section of the library.

In addition to the display, the library wants to share with you some useful websites related to Black History Month.
