Welcome! Middlebury College's Davis Family Library is celebrating Black History Month 2018. Catch a sneak peek of the many book titles and their covers that will be included below. While this page gives you a visual representation of the books, know that multiple audio CDs and DVDs will be included, too. For call numbers for these items, see this crowd-sourced spreadsheet, February: Black/African American History Month.
