Celebrating Women’s History Month!

"Information helps you to see that you're not alone. That there's somebody in Mississippi and somebody in Tokyo who all have wept, who've all longed and lost, who've all been happy. So the library helps you to see, not only that you are not alone, but that you're not really any different from everyone else."

What is the Meaning of Black History Month?

The 1920’s and 1930’s was a time when the Harlem Renaissance helped to foster a new black
cultural identity.  In 1926, Dr. Carter Godwin Woodson, a black historian from Kentucky who
earned a Ph.D from Harvard, established what is now annually celebrated as Black History 
Month.  Black history month was created by Dr. Woodson after he noticed the lack of attention
paid to Black Americans in the history books.  The month of February was chosen because
Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln had birthdays in that month.
