a place for all peopleCelebrate Black History Month with a debut exhibit from the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES).

The exhibit will be on display in the library until the end of February. Learn more about the exhibit from the Smithsonian.

"A Place for All People is a historic poster exhibit celebrating the opening of the newest Smithsonian museum, the National Museum of African American History and Culture. A Place for All People is generously supported by the Smithsonian Institution's Office of the Provost. 

The African American story is one characterized by pain and glory, power and civility, enslavement and freedom. A Place for All People evokes the power of oration and freedom stories, the brilliance of artistic achievement, and the soaring heights of cultural expression, philosophy, sports, and politics. In addition to profiling the long struggle to create the Museum, the building’s architectural design and its prominent location on the National Mall, the poster exhibit is a survey of the African American community’s powerful, deep and lasting contributions to the American story." -- Smithsonian
