February is Black History Month to observe, recognize, and honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans throughout our history. In observance of this, we invite you to follow us on Facebook or Instagram @AbilenePublicLibrary as we highlight noted people from the past and present with mini biographies.
Every Tuesday through Friday at 8:30AM, we’ll highlight people you may have heard of, and those you have not, and provide you not only with mini biographies on their contributions to our country, but also to resources at your library to take your learning even further.
From the high-jumping feats of Alice Coachman to the poetry of Phyllis Wheatley, the aviation accomplishments of Bessie Coleman to the magical voice of Marian Anderson, discover new people who have left their mark in our world during February through social media. If you wish to take your learning even further, we’ve certainly got the material at your library to satisfy your literary appetite. Come check us out!
