Black History Month Theme 2021
The Enid Public Library celebrates Black History Month this February with a featured display of "A Place for All People." We are also having book talks, reading lists, and other events. The theme for Black History Month this year is "Black Family: Representation, Identity, & Diversity." It's dedicated to exploring African diaspora, the history of the dispersal of large communities of native African peoples. In particular, the history and growth of black communities and black families across the United States.
"A Place for All People"
“A Place for All People: Introducing the National Museum of African American History and Culture” is a commemorative poster exhibition celebrating the opening of the Smithsonian’s newest museum Sept. 24, 2016. Based on the inaugural exhibitions of the museum, the posters highlight key artifacts that tell the rich and diverse story of the African American experience. “A Place for All People” is organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) in collaboration with the museum.
