Black History Month is here, and this week’s “Hot and Hidden” pays homage to the month’s festivities. This collection of pictorial books by prolific African American artists, painters, photographers, and visionaries highlights the African American experience via images of the culture and moments in history. Please enjoy images from Jacob Lawrence, Gordon Parks, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Deborah Willis, and others. Expand your knowledge. Embrace the history. Happy BHM! These books and others like them can be found on the 2nd floor Hot & Hidden display in front of the Pilkington Room.
