Black History: Engage with RFL Resources

As James Baldwin wrote in his letter to his nephew in The Fire Next Time, white people “are, in effect, still trapped in a history which they do not understand; and until they understand it, they cannot be released from it.”

Here is a list of  resources (Listen, Read, Engage) we have available at the Richmond Library concerning the history and experiences of blacks in the United States. An internet search will yield many antiracist reading lists, check out this one from Read It Forward, and if you see something you are interested in but is not available at RFL, we can try to get it for you via Inter-Library Loan (titles must not be newer than 6 months).
