Race and Racism in America - African American History Month - FEBRUARY 2017
@MenloLibrary: "A History of Race and Racism in America, in 24 Chapters" -
Ibram X. Kendi: "On the occasion of Black History Month , I’ve selected the most influential books on race and the black experience published in the United States for each decade of the nation’s existence .... these works tell the history of anti-black racism in the United States as painfully, as eloquently, as disturbingly as words can. In many ways, they also tell its present." -
