Exhibits Celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month
National Hispanic Heritage Month is a period from September 15 to October 15, celebrating the histories, cultures, and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. The theme for 2019 is “Hispanic Americans: A History of Serving Our Nation”.
You are invited to see displays honoring National Hispanic Heritage Month at both Henderson and Lane Libraries. Henderson Library’s exhibit features images of several individuals of Hispanic descent who have contributed to the history of the United States, national flags of Hispanic countries, and artifacts celebrating Hispanic culture. Visit this exhibit on the second floor of Zach S. Henderson Library (Statesboro campus) and be sure to sign the visitor’s log!
If you’re in Savannah, stop by Lane Library to see their celebration of authors of Hispanic and Latinx heritage. Their display includes fiction, non-fiction, and children’s books. Lane is also highlighting the events hosted by Multicultural Affairs on both campuses to celebrate Hispanic and Latinx Heritage Month.
