At the library, we strive to provide you the tools to stimulate thought about the significant issues and events of the past, present, and future. As we approach Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (January 21) and Black History Month (February), it’s a good time to reflect on the momentous Civil Rights Movement in the United States that led to improved rights for minority groups. In honor of the Movement, the library is hosting “The Road to the Promised Land: Martin Luther King Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement,” a traveling exhibition by Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. The exhibit features photos, quotes, and information about the key contributors to and events of the Civil Rights Movement. Come by anytime the library is open between now and February 15 to view it.
