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.
