Black History Month

The Walker Library at MTSU is proud to celebrate Black History Month. Throughout this month we will be highlighting resources from our collection which underscore the triumphs, struggles, and cultural contributions of African Americans. Please see our African American Studies guide for links to digital collections and lists of library materials related to this topic. 

We also feature two displays in the Walker Library:  

Just past the elevators on the Walker Library 1st floor is a display from the Center for Popular Music collection. “Rulers of Rhythm” is a look at innovative Black music icons of the 20th century linked by a nickname (King of Pop, Queen of Soul, etc.) that denotes their rule over their music genre. Each artist is represented by sheet music and/or record(s) and a brief story discussing them and their contributions to American music. 

Also on display are materials available for checkout from the Walker Library. These books celebrate the 2013 Black History Month theme: At the Crossroads of Freedom and Equality: The Emancipation Proclamation and the March on Washington. 

MTSU will be celebrating Black History Month throughout February with numerous cultural and social events.
