February Book Display: Black History Month

February’s book display is a celebration of Black History Month! Come to the Golisano Library to see some familiar figures in history such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, and Frederick Douglass, and other figures in history that may not be so familiar to you like George Washington Carver and Harriett Jacobs. Works by famous writers and poets like Langston Hughes, Alice Walker, and Zora Neale Hurston are also included.

From our Juvenile Literature Collection, authors of books awarded the Coretta Scott King Award are also featured. The Coretta Scott King Book Award is given annually to outstanding African-American authors and illustrators that demonstrate an appreciation of African-American culture and universal human values. Some of these reward recipients included in the display are Jacqueline Woodson for Brown Girl Dreaming, Walter Dean Myers for Fallen Angels, and Maya Angelou for I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.

There are many more books displayed to celebrate Black History Month at the Golisano Library, so hurry in while this book display lasts through February!
