February is designated as African American History Month. The ECC Library has many resources related to black history, culture, and the arts.
On the second floor of the Library (Building C), see our book display Race Relations–Where are we?
We also have items available for the February 6 Read In in Room C-120 in the library. Check with the First Floor Reference Desk (Building C) for titles.
These are specialized databases that can help you explore the issues related to black history:
The Social Justice Research Guide provides links to databases, books, and information on race relations, white privilege, civil rights, and more.
If you would like to find something specific, the librarians can help you with choosing biographies, poetry, databases, fiction, and nonfiction works. Contact us and we are happy to help!
Elgin Community College also has a wonderful month of festivities available to the college community and the public; most are free. Contact the Office of Student Life at 847-214-7078 for more information on event times and venues.
