Black History Month 2014 - Celebrating the Arts

LINC along with its partners the Kansas City Public Library and the Black Archives of Mid-America is again pleased to produce and share its annual Black History educational poster set and booklets. 

For Black History Month 2014 we remember African American musicians, writers and visual artists from Kansas City and the surrounding region who contributed significantly to the cultural life of the United States during the 20th century.

These artists helped America recognize itself as never before – to see itself in portrayals of black lives, hear itself in black modes of expression, and feel itself in their vital, creative pulse.

Their work helped American culture take flight as a global influence and continues to enrich not only the lives of their fellow Americans but those of people beyond its shores.

Copies of the booklets will be available soon at Kansas City Public Library, the Black Archives of Mid-America and some branches of Mid-Continent Public Library.

The Black Archives of Mid-America is also creating teacher's guide and other educational materials which will be available through their website or contacting them by phone at (816) 221-1600.

Posters and booklets from prior years are available for download below.
