Recycled Reads celebrates February, Black History Month

February 6, 2013 at 6:27 pm Leave a comment

Welcome to February! We’re only a few days late in welcoming the new month, but we have been busy sorting through some big piles of books. Be on the lookout for some fresh titles and newly priced collectibles in the coming weeks. We’re putting them on the shelves as fast as we can alphabetize!

With February, we celebrate many things. Black History Month has been celebrated in America since the late 1970s, and every February since then cultural centers have rallied to pay tribute to African Americans and their achievements in our history. For more information and educational resources, check out the Library of Congress African American History Month website. The Smithsonian Education site also offers some great resources.

If you’re in the area, check out our display at the shop. We’ll update it throughout the month. Some current titles are:

  • Blacks in the West by W. Sherman Savage
  • Slavery in the Cities: The South: 1820-1860 by Richard C. Wade
  • Jump for Joy: Jazz, Basketball & Black Culture in 1930s America by Gena Caponi-Tabery
  • Talk that Talk: An Anthology of African-American Storytelling edited by Linda Goss and Marian E. Barnes
