Black History Month at Trexler Library

Black History Month at Trexler Library

Celebrate African American musicians with Trexler library this Black History Month! Our themed, annual display is now up in the library lobby. This year we’re profiling African American musicians. The display has bios for names you have heard, like Jimi Hendrix and Ray Charles, and some you may not have, like Josephine Baker and Scott Joplin.

We will also be sharing profiles of the musicians on our display and others on our social media feeds throughout the month. Follow along @desales_trexler and tell us about African American musicians who have influenced you!

Black History Month, or African-American History Month, began as Negro History Week in 1926 which encouraged the teaching of African American history in public schools. In 1970, it was expanded to Black History Month at Kent State University and became a nation-wide celebration in 1976 when President Gerald Ford recognized it.
