Murrell Library celebrates Black History Month 

By Meliyah Venerable / Managing Editor 

In honor of Black History Month, throughout the month of February, the Murrell Library is opening an exhibit for the students and community members of Marshall. The exhibit A place for all people, explores the history, culture and community of African Americans and celebrates the new Smithsonian museum, the National Museum of African American History and Culture.

To celebrate both Black History Month and Women’s History Month the Murrell Library is hosting an event at 7 p.m. on March 28 in the Eckilson-Mabee Theatre. The program will begin with an introduction by a female defense industry worker during World War II (Rosie the Riveter) and be followed by a showing of the documentary Invisible Warriors: African American Women in World War II. There will be a virtual question and answer session with the producer of the documentary, Professor Gregory S. Cooke.
