Black Lives Matter Book Display Featured Resource

Due to some unforeseen matters, we were not able to develop content for the blog last week. Our apologies.

We want to remind readers that on this day in April of 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated. To underscore this event, as well as the resources that UCI Libraries provides researchers and students, this week’s “Featured Resource” is the Black Studies Center. We also recommend that readers visit the King Center’s website to learn more about Dr. King and his legacy.
