It’s Harriet Tubman, Carter Woodson, Harlem Renaissance, blues and jazz, The Color Purple, Maya Angelou, Motown and rap, Civil Rights Movement and Spike Lee. And that’s not even scratching the surface.
February was dedicated nationally as Black History Month in 1976 to recognize the significant contributions made to American culture by African Americans.
At Macomb, free film viewings and book discussions related to Black History Month will take place throughout the month at the South and Center Campus libraries. Check it out here http://www.macomb.edu/resources/library/attachments/Library-Enrichment.pdf.
I’m particularly interested in the book discussion on Ta-Nehis Coates Between the World and Me, named one of the best ten books for 2015.
