Billie Jane Baguley Library and Archives Collection Spotlight for February 2016

February 18, 2016

The relations between African Americans and Native Americans throughout the history of the United States are as complex as they are compelling. As we celebrate Black History Month, February is an appropriate time to examine this intricate history. Currently on display in the public reading area of the library, these four selections describe the interconnections between these different cultures through language, literature and narratives. Please feel free to visit the library to review these or any other items of interest in the library and archives collections.
