Two displays are currently on view at the college’s Pecan Campus Library. On the first floor, a book display features a wide assortment of titles that explore the African-American experience in all of its rich variety and complexity. In the Rainbow Room, a display of posters commemorates milestones in the Civil Rights Movement.

The month-long celebration was made possible in part by a grant from Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. For more information about the events contact Chris Davis at 956-872-2275 or at
