January 21, 2020
February officially marks Black History Month. It's an annual celebration to honor
achievements by African Americans who have made significant contributions to America
and the world. The University of Wyoming will hold several programs to celebrate Black
History Month, including Martin Luther King Jr. Days of Dialogue, a Black History Conference, and several Black History Month programs.
In addition to these programs, UW Libraries will have several titles and media on
display in Coe Library throughout the month and additional digital resources outlined
below. UW Libraries subscribes to a variety of online resources documenting the histories,
experiences, and cultures of African Americans, Africans, and other peoples of the
African diaspora. Here is a selective list to help you start exploring them.
