Black History Month

Black History Month

February marks the start of our 28-day journey to highlight and explore Black history and culture. While we wholeheartedly appreciate the increased awareness that Black History Month provides, we also think that February should be a starting point for grounding your yearlong conversations around acceptance, equality, and the diverse culture of people around the African diaspora.

While many Black History Month recommendations are consumed with stories of oppression and struggle, we are very intentional about equally emphasizing the joy, love, and innovativeness that radiates through Black communities.  We’ve offered a few books off of our shelves to share for your Black History Month journey. This is by no means an exhaustive list, these are just a few to start you off.  We encourage you to continue to add more options to your reading routines throughout the rest of the year.
