Welcome to our Black History Month Library Guide. The theme for Black History Month 2024 focuses on “African Americans and the Arts”. This theme is infused with African, Caribbean, and Black American lived experiences. In honor of February being Black History Month, we are inviting you to explore the library's print and digital books highlighted on this guide.
