This month’s post in honor of Black History Month features short fiction by Black writers from America and around the world. The selections presented here are featured in Kenneth C. Davis’ book Great Short Books: A Year of Reading—Briefly. Many thanks to MSJ librarian Cynthia Gregory for bringing this work to the attention of the Library!
In celebration of the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., we present a list of works written by great civil rights leader and minister, as well as several biographical works about him and his equally prominent contemporaries. Also included are several nonfiction works on the history of civil rights, race relations, and the struggle for equality in America.
