The February 2012 book display in the Library & Learning Commons is titled, African-American Soldiers in the Civil War. The display features copies of photos from the Library of Congress Liljenquist Collection.

With the Black Student Union, the LLC is sponsoring the February 15th screening of Glory, to be held in the Calkins Science Auditorium from 4:00-6:00 PM. The 1989 film starring Matthew Broderick, Cary Elwes, Morgan Freeman, and Denzel Washington tells the story of the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, the first totally African-American unit to serve in the War Between the States, as told by its commanding officer.
