Feb 9, 2016

February is Black History month, and the Capital Area District Libraries have some interesting and enlightening events planned to celebrate. We speak with Jolee Hamlin, associate director of public service, and professor Roy Finkenbine, a guest speaker at one of the events.


You’ve heard of the Underground Railroad, but do you know how Michigan played a part? You know about the famous musicians of Motown, but what about the talented players who accompanied them and went largely unrecognized? Capital Area District Libraries have planned a series of events for Black History Month that will look at these questions and more.

Current State talks about the events with Jolee Hamlin, associate director of public service at Capital Area District Libraries.
