To celebrate Black History Month, the University of Texas Libraries will present a screening Nothing But a Man, starring Ivan Dixon and Abbey Lincoln and directed by Michael Roemer. Nothing But a Man tells the story of an African- American railroad worker who marries a preacher’s daughter in Alabama. They face oppression and discriminations in this 1960s small town setting.

The Library of Congress selected the film for the National Film Registry in 1993 due to the film’s historical and cultural significance. The Fine Arts Library is also showing a display, Black History: Some Documentation, a selection of print materials that ranges from first or early editions of important works of American/Black Diaspora literature through the material referencing today’s Black Lives Matters movement.
