The John Marshall Law School Celebrates Black History Month

Each year Phyllis Finney, the library circulation coordinator, heads up Black History Month for the Louis L. Biro Library at the John Marshall Law School along with Professor Kevin Hopkins. Phyllis commemorates and celebrates the contributions of people of African descent to our nation.  This year Finney chose the theme of African American chefs, their recipes, and where it all began. Students, faculty and staff, and alumni are encouraged to stop by the 6th floor of the library to check out the display.
