CHECK IT OUT: Customer appreciation coming next month

Published: Monday, December 31, 2012 at 03:44 PM.

"Eyes on the Prize" — a companion to a PBS civil rights documentary that first aired in the 1980s —is a great primer on the decade that portrays the struggles of courageous people who took a stand for equality. 

Even if you think you are not a history book person, or that these issues don't directly relate to you, I guarantee you will be pulled in by these stories.

I also recommend watching the PBS documentary, available at the library.

Both works stand on their own, but once you watch the series, you will probably want to read the book.

In addition, check out items from our African American History Month display.

Please join us for the First Tuesday lecture, 10:30 a.m. Feb. 5, to hear guest speaker George Stakley with the Carver Hill Museum as we celebrate African American History Month.

Marie Garcia is the Crestview Public Library’s assistant library director.
