Celebrating Black History Month in our H.S. Library

This year’s theme: The Crisis in Black Education. The theme for 2017 focuses on the crucial role of education in the history of African Americans. Carter G. Woodson once wrote that “if you teach the Negro that he has accomplished as much good as any other race he will aspire to equality and justice without regard to race.” 

Come by to check out the plethora of outstanding books highlighting  African American achievement.
