Arden Library celebrates Black History Month 2023
October is Black History Month in the UK, a time to celebrate Black culture, honour and reflect on triumph in the face of prejudice and adversity, and recognise progress still to be made. Each year a different theme is chosen for the campaign to highlight Black experiences and achievements and this year the theme is ‘Saluting Our Sisters’. Embracing the complexity of intersectionality, this theme aims to uplift, amplify, and commemorate Black women in all aspects of life.
To mark Black History Month 2023 in the Library Service we’ve curated a dedicated collection of eBook titles, aligned to our course subjects, some of which focus specifically on the perspectives and voices of Black women in fields such as public health, business, and STEM. Other titles also explore Black experiences in areas such as design and creativity, counselling and psychotherapy, computing, and more. We hope that you’ll find this collection of books informative, thought-provoking, and a valuable addition to our resources and to your studies.
