“The Muntz Library presents ‘Africa in the Americas’ as a means to promote ongoing dialogue about the history of the ‘New World’ and common aspects of the heritage of American countries, both north and south,” said Angel Rivera, UT Tyler outreach librarian.
The exhibit will continue through Friday, Feb. 27.
