2019 Black History Month

To celebrate and promote reading about the importance of Black History Month, Windham libraries created special library sections full of material about and by famous and historical black people.

Several Windham teachers also decorated their classroom doors with photos, quotes and art in the form of well-known black artists, singers, actors, and historical figures.

The theme of this year's Black History Month is Black Migrations, which focuses on the move from the south to the north made by people of African descent in the early twentieth century.
