Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history.
Throughout the month of February, there are a number of book clubs and events being held at the JMRL branches to help celebrate.
For a list of what’s happening, visit JMRL’s Black History Month 2020 webpage.
There are other resources on this webpage, such as lists of African American authors and books, eBooks/Audiobooks, and resources for historical research.
