The Berea College Hutchins Library has put together a book display in the second floor to honor Black History Month. We are featuring a selection of books from our collection as well as some photos and materials. There is even a small quiz to see if you can identify some famous African Americans (don’t worry. If you need a little help, you can stop at the reference desk).
The following books are on display now. These books are available for checkout, so if any grab your attention, feel free to take it. The rest of the year, you can find the books in our circulating collection on the third floor:
