Hi Matadors! February is Black History Month and we invite you to join the Oviatt and campus to celebrate with many events. Don’t miss the book display in the Library Learning Commons which features works by many accomplished writers, leaders, and scholars. Any one of the titles that include memoirs, personal writings, fiction, nonfiction, and short stories will surely inspire.
Also, feel free to check out the digital exhibits and videos that will be shown on our Media Wall in the ASRS Viewing Room, Main Floor, East Wing of the Oviatt Library. The Martin Luther King Jr. “I Have a Dream Speech,” and two slideshows – a 50 years of Photographic History and a Loren Miller Slideshow are just a few of the digital exhibits and videos that will be displayed.
