Celebrate Black History Month with these Books

The 2021 African Heritage Month theme, Black History Matters: Listen, Learn, Share and Act, recognizes the important legacy of people of African descent and the long-standing history in the development of Canada.

The theme brings focus and increased awareness of racialized issues of a community that has overcome great adversity for inclusion. It further calls on us to listen, learn, share and act to make society a better place.

Cape Breton Regional Library is please to share a list of relevant books to help spread knowledge of Black History in Canada.
