The Bryan/College Station Public Library System is proud to celebrate Black History Month this February with special events and activities all month long. We’re also proud to promote Black heritage and history year-round through our large collection of books and other media.
African American culture is influenced through the artistic and cultural movements of Black Arts, Black Renaissance, hip-hop, and Afrofuturism, which have been led by people of African descent that set the standard for popular trends around the world. In 2024, Black History Month examines the varied history and life of African American arts and artisans.
Visit our library branches and explore our events, displays, and collections related to this year’s theme of arts and artisans. We’ve got more than 200 titles for all ages ranging from biographies of Black artists, to folktales and stories, and from local family histories, to books on how African American cooking techniques have shaped the food scene in America today.
