Black History Month

Black History Month

Join us is this annual celebration.

‘Black History Month 2020 is a time for people to come together and hopefully learn lessons for the present and the future. It’s a time to honour the commitment to learning and standing united against racism. It’s a time to reclaim history and re-imagine how our shared history will be told in the future.’ Catherine Ross, editor of Black History Month

We pride ourselves on our wide range of history books, but as well as black stories from history we feel this celebration is also about stories from now – now is history!

Books for Black History Month

We’ve chosen two recently published books we think are well worth highlighting – one fiction and non-fiction, both by black British authors.

We celebrate the adaptation of David Olusoga’s monumental book, Black and British, in this perfect history for children, alongside this beautifully crafted debut novel for children.
