SAVANNAH – Throughout February, Live Oak Public Libraries will celebrate Black History Month. This year’s theme is Black Resistance, recognizing the historic legacy of Black activists and activism that extends back centuries and continues today.
The community is invited to explore authors, artists, and special events honoring the Black experience.
Award-winning author Trelani Michelle will lead a panel discussion on Black Resistance in Savannah at Southwest Chatham Library on Saturday, February 11, 2023 at 11:30 a.m. Michelle will be joined by lifetime residents of Coastal Georgia, including Gena Taylor, Deborah Goldwire, Tre Singleton, and Antonio Spann, as they talk about how they overcame social injustices during their lives.
Live Oak Public Libraries will host other special presenters throughout the month at multiple library locations across Chatham, Effingham, and Liberty counties. All programs are free and open to the public. Please check the library website or contact the Hinesville Library for registration requirements.
