Black History Month reprise

Part of the reason I got this Instagram plug-in for the website was to share “collections” that are assembled over time on IG. Some of the first themed posts we did were for 2017 Black History Month.

Browse through these photos to see some of the books we highlighted. There was a bit of serendipity working for us at the time, because we happened to buy a first edition of Uncle Tom’s Cabin during this Black History Month.

Although a few of the books pictured were historically important contributions by white authors, the other big theme for these posts were literary contributions by African American authors.

September 2017 note: apparently, the search function for Instagram doesn’t keep much history, and nothing appears here any more! Well, follow us on Instagram and see what we do next year!
