Black History Month

February was designated Black History Month because two prominent figures, Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Doughlas have birthdays this month.  BHM is a time to celebrate the culture and achievements of Black people.  This year, the theme is “Black Health and Wellness”. 

For families: Watch Hidden Figures, based on the true story of Three brilliant African-American women at NASA who serve as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit. 

For kids: What Color Is My World?: The Lost History of African-American Inventors

For adults: Fiction The Girl with the Louding Voice by Abi Dare

Non-Fiction: ‘Overground Railroad: The Green Book & Roots of Black Travel in America’ by Candacy A. Taylor. During the mid-century period, Black travelers used the Green Book — a guide to safe towns and businesses — to find food and lodgings and avoid sundown towns on their journeys.
