Black Heroes - Black History Month

In celebration of Black History month we are highlighting the black heroes who have advanced the civil rights movement, pushed the boundaries of science, and made their mark in US and world history.  Below you will find lists of library resources to help you explore the lives and work of these American heroes. 

Our Black Heroes collections are also a sneak preview of the library's new catalog and web site, debuting in early March.  When you click each photo below you will be taken to a new digital list created using the new catalog.
