African American History Month: Three Displays in the Library

The Chatt State Library is recognizing African American History Month with three displays in the Library as well as daily postings on the Library's Facebook page.

Two of the three displays are sponsored on the college campus by the Chatt State Student Affairs department and the Multicultural Services office.  These two displays are the "Bright Ideas: African American Inventors" and "Black in Blue and Gray: Black Americans in the Civil War."

The Bright Ideas display is produced by the Mary Walker Historical & Educational Foundation. The display has invented objects to see and short informational biographies to read.

The Black in Blue and Gray display is sponsored by VW with additional support from County Commissioner Greg Beck. The display is produced by the Mary Walker Foundation with graphic design assistance from the Chattanooga History Center. The display contains both images and written descriptions of soldiers in the Civil War.

 Chatt State's theme for this year's African American History Month is "At the Crossroads of Freedom and Equality: The Emancipation Proclamation and the March on Washington."  You can find more about this month's planned activities at the Chatt State website. In coordination with this theme, the library staff has created a book display. Please check out a book from the display.
