Celebrate Black History & Culture

February is Black History Month, an annual celebration and recognition of the spectacular contributions and achievements, as well as the overwhelming struggles and hardships, of the African American community. This year we are highlighting powerful Black voices across all genres of literature, from playwrights to poets, pioneers of the Harlem Renaissance to modern writers just making their debut. Understand the history, embrace the culture, and engage in a thought-provoking discussion with our 2023 Black History Month collection.

Chasing Me to My Grave: An Artist's Memoir of the Jim Crow South By Winfred Rembert, Erin I. Kelly, Bryan Stevenson (Foreword by) Cover Image
ISBN: 9781635576597
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Bloomsbury Publishing - September 7th, 2021

"While the horrors of the Jim Crow South have been well documented, Winfred Rembert’s memoir in words and paintings lends immediacy and specificity to their lasting trauma. Rembert’s survival could be described as miraculous if that didn’t seem to discount his own tenacity or absolve his tormentors. Chasing Me to My Grave is painful to read, but it also celebrates beauty and joy and kindness. It is a powerful testament to America’s most shameful history, but even more so to Rembert’s talent and vision as an artist, and to his unique and indomitable spirit."

South to America: A Journey Below the Mason-Dixon to Understand the Soul of a Nation By Imani Perry Cover Image
ISBN: 9780062977403
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Ecco - January 25th, 2022

"Imani Perry, National Book Award Winner, has not written a history book - as she tells you in her introduction – but a letter. A letter of introduction to us, a love letter to herself, a letter of sympathy for the past. Each chapter covers a different State, Region, or City of “The South”, and within those chapters are dictionary definitions of slang, historic records, insightful interviews, and heartwarming personal anecdotes, as she tries to illustrate the complex story of the Southern United States like you’ve never heard before."
-Gwyneth, Detroit
