In celebration of black history month, the Claire T. Carney Library is highlighting select resources. Librarian liaison for African Studies, Linda Zieper, identified several books and websites which have been compiled into a handy black history month resource that is available for you to download.
Since this page lists only a fraction of the library’s available resources and relevant websites, readers wanting to do more research should check out Ms. Zieper’s African & African American Studies LibGuide. We hope you find this celebratory page interesting and helpful. If you have questions or need help finding something specific, let us know!
Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the inaugural event of UMassD’s Black History Month: A presentation by Dr. Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, “Now You See it, Now You Don’t! The Sweet Enchantment of Post-Racial Racism in Contemporary America.” The presentation is on Feb. 4, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. in our Claire T. Carney Library’s Library Grand Reading Room. A reception will follow the presentation at 1:30 p.m. in the UMass Dartmouth Frederick Douglass Unity House.
