An inspiring Portland success story: In 2013, Deena Pierott was recognized as a Champion of Change for Technology Inclusion at the White House. The reason? Her iUrban Teen program, which inspires male African American, Latino and Native American teens to pursue careers in technology. http://bit.ly/1DPSTjm #BlackHistoryMonth

She’s amazing. Patricia Bath attends Howard University School of Medicine, New York and Columbia universities. She believes everyone has a “Right to Sight.” She invents the Laserphaco Probe and procedure to improve cataract surgery results. She’s the first African American woman doctor to patent a medical invention. She’s the first African American woman surgeon at the UCLA Medical Center. She’s the first woman on faculty at the UCLA Jules Stein Eye Institute. Again, she's amazing! http://bit.ly/1E9U0qK #BlackHistoryMonth

Come to Holgate and Midland libraries next week for a Lunar New Year ‪#‎liondance‬, martial arts presentation and traditional folk dance. We'll also have crafts and activities for younger kids.
Portlanders will be celebrating the year of the ram (or sheep, or goat) starting Wednesday, Feb. 19.

On March 1, 1966, this image appeared on the cover of British Vogue. Can you guess why her hand covers her face (particularly her nose and lips)? Before Beverly Johnson (yes, Beverly Johnson), Ya-Ya Dacosta, Naomi Campbell, Damaris Lewis, Iman and Tyra Banks, there was Donyale Luna. Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Luna rose to fashion fame at a young age: http://bit.ly/1yywcIA #BlackHistoryMonth

Mythology is a name we give to something of the past, but even now we are creating and recreating new mythologies. The My Librarian team has created "Myth Picks," full of titles that describe our personal mythologies. What book, song or other piece of art describes your personal mythology?

Born in 1877 in Kentucky, Garrett Morgan owned a sewing machine store, a tailoring shop and a country club. He invented and patented the three-position traffic light (still in use today) and the safety hood, later known as the gas mask, which saved the lives of many. He started the Cleveland Call newspaper to address racial injustice. Oh, and his formal education didn’t extend beyond elementary school! Explore this: http://bit.ly/1yRA6NS #BlackHistoryMonth
