Staff Recommends

Four Hundred Souls
Ibram X Kendi

"The story begins in 1619 when the White Lion came onto the shores of Virginia and takes us to the present. Ninety writers contributed to this history of African Americans and their struggles then and that still exist today. This is a history that illuminates our past and gives us new ways of thinking about our future, written by the most vital and essential voices of our present. This is a fast read with lots of different points of view from historians and ordinary people. A history not in your school books. -D" More »
