February is Black History Month

Book Jacket for: Roots  Book Jacket for: The March on Washington : jobs, freedom, and the forgotten history of civil rights Book Jacket for: Many thousand gone : African Americans from slavery to freedom

American history is as rich and tumultuous as are the people who created it.  The month of February is when Americans focus on the lives of people originally brought here against their will from Africa, who struggled for generations to be free.

Check out the Fortier Library's collection of materials about the chapter of America's dramatic history that began an ocean away.
