Black History Month: Latin American and Caribbean Heritage

The new LACC display “Black History Month: Latin American and Caribbean Heritage” is now installed opposite the circulation desk. LACC has a wealth of resources related to, and created by, people of African descent, particularly in the Caribbean and Brazil but also in every country in the Americas. This month’s display focuses on cultural production, specifically music and poetry, including an audio CD of Cuban poet Nicolás Guillén reading his work, graphic novels about Mary Seacole and Frantz Fanon, and documentaries about the life of Marcus Garvey, among others.

We also have a table set aside for books and videos about Haiti. This part of the display compliments some of the material in the online exhibit The Haitian American Dream Timeline.
