While February is Black History Month, (celebrated in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K.) black history can and should be learned/taught/acknowledged all year round by everyone. It’s about honoring the history as well as black excellence. Learning and engaging with each other is the best way to create a kind and cohesive community. Black lives still matter, today and every day. These specially curated lists were chosen by RPL’s own, Yusuf Brown. They’ve been organized for you by category; movies, biographies, young adult titles, fiction, and nonfiction. There’s something for everyone and plenty of materials for all the branches. Check something out at your local branch today!
