February is Black History month, and to get a jump start we will be presenting Glory tomorrow in the YA reading alcove at 1:00 pm.

“Loosely based on the letters of Union commander Col. Robert G. Shaw, this Academy Award-winning drama follows the first group of African-Americans to serve in combat during the Civil War — and shows how they helped turn the tide of the war.”

So stop in, pull up a comfy chair, and enjoy the first in a chronological string of movies that will be shown based on Black History in the United States:

Glory – Friday, January 25th @ 1pm

Solomon Northup’s Odyssey – Friday, February 1st @ 1pm

Places in the Heart – Friday, February 8th @ 1pm

In Their Own Words: The Tuskegee Airmen – Friday, February 15 @ 1pm

The Help – Friday, February 22 @ 1pm
