It's late in the month to mention this, but there are a lot of programs and exhibitions at SFPL for Black History Month. Here at Excelsior we have a small display of books in the entrance wall case. You are welcome to ask a librarian to pull a book out of the case for you to check out, or to recommend other books on the subject. People are also borrowing books from the "Check Out the Civil Rights Movement" and Martin Luther King Jr. displays.
And here is a quotation from author and playwright Zora Neale Hurston (1903 - 1960):
"Mama exhorted her children at every opportunity to 'jump at de sun.' We might not land on the sun, but at least we would get off the ground."
