​Voices: Black History Month

Communities are comprised of a diversity of experiences and perspectives and the many voices that emerge from those experiences and perspectives. We believe that these voices make for a richer, more meaningful experience for all.

Join Phoenix Public Library in enjoying and learning from the many voices of our community through monthly themes meant to educate, entertain and inspire.

This month, we are celebrating voices that capture the rich and diverse history and ongoing contributions of African-American people in our communities.
