Black History Month is a great reminder that stories have power. To celebrate Black History Month, the Andersen Library has three “Stories Have Power” displays depicting the power of story through the lens of film, literature, and the Black Student Union. Two of the three displays are out in the entrance way—both the Black Student Union and the literature-friendly displays. The Black Student Union’s display depicts the maturation of the black presence here on campus using a “Then & Now” theme. The other display in the entrance way offers literature available here at the Andersen Library. The third display—film display—stands upright in the display case that lives in the “Big TV Area”. This display is inspired by the New York Times’ article “28 Films, 28 Days for Black History Month”. Their team of chief film critics identified 28 renowned films they thought embodied the 20th century. We’ve obtained 21 of the 28 films!
Be sure to check out all three displays here at the Andersen Library. Ask the circulation desk to assist you if you feel compelled to check anything out that is an Andersen Library resource.
