We are currently celebrating two events at B Street Books--Presidents' Day and Black History Month. We have a good selection of books about presidents and the presidency, as well as books by and about African Americans.
Presidents' Day has its origins back in the late 1800s, when a day was set aside to honor George Washington. Over the years, it has become a day to celebrate the achievements of all US presidents. In the 1920s an organization that is now known as the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, sponsored a week-long celebration of African American accomplishments. Black History Month was first recognized nationally by Gerald Ford, and has been recognized by every president since.
Stop by and help us celebrate!
