Black History Month Exhibit in the Salena Showcase GalleryDescription: D:\My\Documents\My Webs\mcbhm.jpg

  Check out the exciting sampling of the Library's Media Center collections on view this month in the Resnick Showcase Gallery. Our collections, which support all disciplines on campus, are particularly rich in titles that deal with the African American experience.

  What better time than Black History Month to explore our holdings for yourself, whether you’re interested in history, civil rights, music, sports, urban life, Brooklyn, art, dance, literature, or, of course, film (from Oscar Micheaux’s films of the early 1900s, to Hollywood stars like Sidney Poitier and Dorothy Dandridge, to the explosion of urban themes and black filmmakers in the 1970s, to the more recent flowering of African American directors like Spike Lee and Charles Burnett and fine contemporary actors like Halle Berry, Morgan Freeman, Denzel Washington, Jennifer Hudson, Jeffrey Wright, and Don Cheadle).

  This display represents just a fraction of the excellent resources in our collection, so come up and see us some time and we’ll help you find what you’re looking for, whether it’s for a class or for yourself.
