Black History Month in Meriam Library

February is Black History Month and the Meriam Library has designed and created a display on black women activists from the 1900s to current.  Browse the display on the second floor of the library to see a timeline of seminal events during this period, photos of women, and their inspiring quotes. On the other side of the display are a diverse assortment of books on black women and black history-all of these books can be checked out. Be sure to help yourself to a button with either inspirational words or photos of these amazing women.
