Message from the Director: Celebrate Black History Month at the Livingston Library

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.” – Maya Angelou 

Livingston Library Community, 

It can be argued that Maya Angelou is one of the world’s most influential poets and activists. In honor of Black History Month, the Livingston Public Library in partnership with the Livingston Arts Council invites you to join us on Wednesday, February 15th at 7pm for the film screening of Maya Angelou: Reflections of a Blessed Soul

Maya Angelou: Reflections of a Blessed Soul Film Screening is a documentary film based on an exclusive interview with Maya Angelou in her home in Winston Salem, North Carolina by the multi-award winning filmmakers Hafiz Farid, Shelley Grodner Seidenstein, and Richard Woods. A Q&A session with filmmaker Richard Woods will follow the screening. Registration is not required for this event and all are welcome to attend! 

This Black History Month, you can also look forward to attending the lecture Scott Joplin: King of Ragtime on Monday, February 27th at 2pm. Taking palace virtually on Zoom, attendees will learn all about how Scott Joplin brought Ragtime to the forefront of the 20th century music scene. To register for the Zoom information, please visit the Library’s event calendar

Looking for more literature and resources this Black History Month? The Livingston Public Library invites readers to browse our Black History Month book display in the Adult Seating Area. This display will be up all February long! The Library also offers Livingston library cardholders access to the database  Black Life in America. This database offers users information on the experience and impact of African Americans as recorded by the news media

We hope to see you at these events!

Best, 

Amy Babcock, Director
