With funding from a generous bequest from Marian Armstrong, The Friends of the Library proudly presents Our Voice: Celebrating the Coretta Scott King Illustrator Awards. This exhibit, curated by the National Center for Children’s Illustrated Literature, features 34 prints of illustrations from the award winners since 1973. These award-winning illustrations and children’s books highlight stories and figures from Black history, honoring the triumphs and struggles of African Americans throughout time. They also evoke the beautiful facets integral to the culture and fabric of our nation such as music, rhythm, and folktales. Learn more.
