Established in 1915 by Carter G Woodson, Black History Month is an intersectional celebration that honors Black excellence in our history and in the present. African Americans have a rich history of perseverance and creativity. Black Americans are and always have been fundamental pioneers to American society, despite all adversity. This curation celebrates the history of the Black community, including hair styles, mental health advocacy, activist and resistance movements, resilience and joy.

Visit Bird Library Learning Commons New Books area on the first floor to explore books from the Libraries’ collections, and visit the online guide for book lists and more.

The display and online guide were curated by graduate student Rachel Hogan (M.S. candidate in Library and Information Science) and Michelle Mitchell (Reference and Instruction Librarian). Both work in the Libraries’ Department of Learning and Academic Engagement. Special thanks to Marissa Willingham and Jolisa Smith in the Intercultural Collective department for consulting on the guide and creating the themes of the digital and physical displays.
