Welcome! Middlebury Libraries are celebrating Black History Month 2021 by highlighting books, music, film, and related podcasts that help us celebrate and reflect on Black history.
In Special Collections, look for Black History Month takeovers on their website and social media (Instagram and Facebook). Archivists will give prominence to Black poets, playwrights, and authors, as well as Middlebury alum, all month long.
Be sure to follow the Library News Blog for more recommendations throughout the month!
Click on a book cover to browse descriptions from Good Reads. To check our library availability, look up the title in MIDCAT, the Middlebury Libraries catalog. Alternatively, for call numbers for the items in this display, see this crowd-sourced spreadsheet, February: Black/African American History Month.
Hear from Middlebury College affiliates on race and ethnicity by visiting the 2018 In Your Own Words oral history project. For staff recommended podcasts, just click the second tab on this page.
A special thank you to former Middlebury librarian Katrina Spencer, who created this display, and all the other hands that shaped these efforts!
