Celebrate Black History Month with Tulsa Libraries

Tulsa Library-File Photo

Tulsa County libraries will be celebrating Black History Month all month long through an array of family programs. The programs aim at highlighting the achievements and contributions of African-Americans in American history. All of these educational events are free and open to the public.

The programs have been organized specifically by the Tulsa City-County Library's African American Resource Center. The center aims at protecting and providing access to resources that serve to honor and archive the achievements of African-Americans and those of African descent.

A community wide discussion on black women's hair is the first event planned for this month. It is scheduled for February 11 at 6 p.m. at the Rudisill Regional Library. Rudisill library will also host the 2016 African-American Heritage History Bowl on February 22 at 6 p.m. The trivia bowl is open to all high schools, sororities, fraternities, social and business organizations, churches, and teams.
