New Redpath Book Display: Celebrating Black History Month

News

February 2018

We're celebrating Black History Month with a special new book display. The selections honour the contributions of Black Canadians, their history and their experiences. You will find literature, including poetry, and social and historical studies written by Canadian authors. 

The book display is located in the Redpath Library Building in the Humanities and Social Sciences Library. The display will be up the entire month of February so take a break and browse the shelf…better yet, borrow a book!

For more on how McGill is celebrating Black History Month, visit the Social Equity and Diversity Education Office website.
