"Women in White Coats: How the First Women Doctors Changed the World of Medicine" by Olivia Campbell

Nobody'd better ever tell you that you can't. It would be like instructing you to at least try. It's like waving a 10-foot-tall neon flag that says "DO IT," right in your face. When you're told you can't, you just ...

"This is the Fire: What I Say to My Friends About Racism" by Don Lemon

This really makes your blood boil. This. The racism gone amok, discrimination, the protests that don't seem to work, nobody's listening. You're hot under the collar over it all, totally inflamed, ready for real action, and in "This Is the ...

"The Fabric of Civilization: How Textiles Made the World" by Virginia Postrel

A couple weeks ago, you really needed to wrap up in some extra blankets. One layer, two layers, covered face and a cold nose. Extra blankets, extra sweaters, coats, socks, gloves, it took awhile to thaw yourself out and in ...

"Just As I Am" by Cicely Tyson with Michelle Burford

Man, you're picky. That's not always a bad thing, either. You know what you want so you choose deliberately, carefully, with plenty of thought behind it. What's right for you is right for you and you won't take anything less. ...

Black History Books for Kids ages 3 to 18

When you're a kid, there are so many things to learn. Someone has to teach you your A-B-Cs, and to count to a hundred. You have to learn to tie a knot and set the table and stay safe. And ...

"Kamala's Way: An American Life" by Dan Morain

One step at a time. That's how you get anywhere: methodical, with purpose, one foot in front of the other until you get where you're going. You never waver. You never take shortcuts, side roads, or easy-outs, and as in ...

"My Life in the Purple Kingdom" by BrownMark with Cynthia M. Uhrich, foreword by Questlove

"Dear Justyce" by Nic Stone

Your birthday card had a Black History postage stamp on it. As always, it was from Grandma and though it's kind of corny, you look forward to it ever year: a blue or red envelope outside, a sentimental saying with ...

"Black Women, Black Love: America's War on African American Marriage" by Dianne M. Stewart

"Reclaiming Her Time" by Helena Andrews-Dyer and R. Eric Thomas

"Excuse me. It's my time to talk." Ugh, it's frustrating when someone doesn't honor your voice or respect your ideas. When it's your time to speak, they should at least be quiet, and you shouldn't feel bad for wanting to ...
