Black History Month: Staff Recommendations

As the United States celebrates Black History Month this February, the Tufts Libraries have curated a collection of books, films, and media by Black artists that can be enjoyed year-round. Explore these recommended resources and personal favorites from Ginn Library staff. 

This year's theme for Black History Month is The Black Family: Representation, Identity and Diversity, exploring the African diaspora. Log in with your Tufts username and password to the video platform Kanopy to stream a collection of films and documentaries on Race and Identity.
