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.
The poster above is an example of one of JMRL’s Black History Month events. This event will be at the Northside Library and more information can be found by visiting JMRL’s Facebook page.
