LaMargo Branch, Interlibrary Loan Specialist with the Blagg-Huey Library on the Denton campus, models
a garment from her large African artifact collection. These boubou (dresses) are just a few of the collection's
pieces which LaMargo has generously shared with library patrons--something she has done each Black History
Month since 2004. LaMargo's exhibit for Black History Month 2016 is on display at the library through Febru-
ary. Photograph by Sean Spear. February 10, 2016.
Dozens of LaMargo's pieces, many one of a kind, are now on display in the first-floor lobby of the Blagg-Huey Library. The exhibit is free and open to the public during regular library hours through February 2016.
LaMargo, recipient of the 2014 Pioneer for Diversity staff award for her passionate support of diversity and her mission to promote cultural awareness, shared her thoughts about the award, her amazing collection, and why she's never travelled to Africa.
