Celebrate Black History Month through books, song, and film

Black History Month

Black History Month first became a month-long celebration in 1976. Organizers chose February for the honor, as it held both Fredrick Douglass's and Abraham Lincoln's birthdays. We've compiled a list of books to help you explore African American life and culture. Also, see Kanopy for some insightful streaming documentaries and films.
