Mesa College Library Offers Access to over 60,000 Resources in Honor of Black History
By Office of Communications
Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans
and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. Every year, the San
Diego Mesa College Library joins in the celebration by creating and curating a Black History Month Library Guide – filled with resources of what is available not only at the San Diego Mesa College
Library, but through other community resources as well.
“Between our Mesa College Library and Learning Resource Center, our Black Studies
program and our amazing community partners, we have amassed a list of over 60,000
resources available for the campus and the broader community,” stated Dr. Edeama Onwuchekwa-Jonah,
Mesa College Equity and Engagement Librarian.
The Mesa College Black History Library guide is designed to promote access to library
and community information resources in order to illuminate, preserve, and increase
information about Black History Month. This information resource intentionally focuses
on Black communities in the United States and abroad to highlight the multiplicity
of blackness and Black experiences.
This guide has, in its contents, links to valuable resources such as books, eBooks,
and films, links to notable collections nationwide such as websites archives, and
museums. This guide also features topics on Black Wellness, health, and much more.
These and many more resources are available to the San Diego Mesa College Community
throughout the year, beyond Black History month, for both scholarly and personal enrichment.
