We believe literature has the power to transform minds and promote activism. Our staff personally curates a selection of thought-provoking, enlivening, educational, and entertaining literature, and we relish the responsibility of putting good books in people’s hands. Learn more and get involved.

This February our staff members have put together a list of books they love that honor the canon of African American literature—from kids lit classics to graphic novels with messages of empowerment. We’d love to hear what you’ve been reading for Black History Month too! Tag us on social media and we’ll share your recommendations.
