Black History Month
Black History Month is held in February in the United States to promote the knowledge of black history and experience, and to disseminate information on positive contributions of African-Americans to the fabric of the society.
Accompanying the exhibit on the first floor of McCain Library is a bibliography consisting of books, journal articles and other information resources, highlighting the considerable contributions of African American women to the civil rights movement in America and their giant strides towards equality. The bibliography also features the life and works of Coretta Scott King (April 27, 1927 - Jan. 30, 2006) Human Rights Advocate and wife of the late civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
