Black History Month Book Lists

The Emancipation Proclamation
The Emancipation Proclamation

February is Black History Month and we have lots of resources including a wide array of books, audio books, and films you might enjoy! Don’t want to take the time to search for our offerings – no problem! We’ve put together a few book lists that highlight some of what we have in our extensive collection.

The first book list is more general, featuring both classical works by African American authors and popular contemporary authors like President Barack Obama and Oprah Winfrey. We hope you enjoy the African American Authors book list.

We also have a book list on the more specific topic of Emancipation. This year The University of Illinois Springfield is hosting a symposium on the subject (Symposium Information) – so we put together this list on Emancipation.

You might also enjoy offerings from our collection that are specifically about American American Soldiers or perhaps you would like books about Martin Luther King Jr. – we have a little something for everyone!

If there is a subject you would like us to create a book list for – let us know! We are here to serve you!
