Celebrating Black History Month from October

Black History Month logo

We’re proud to mark Black History Month this year with a range of activities both in the Library at the Lancaster campus and online.

This year we wanted our student community to recommend a title to promote as part of Black History Month. We are grateful to Max Kafula, the newly appointed LUSU BAME Student Officer (20/21), who brought a fitting crowdfunding and book giveaway initiative to our attention. The Library has match-funded the fundraising campaign started by LEC PhD student Douglas Booker with the aim to bring 100 brand new copies of Akala’s Natives: Race & Class in the Ruins of Empire to the hands of students and staff.

Read more about the campaign, the book giveaway, reading groups, reading list and other activities on the Black History Month library guide.
