Each October, Black History Month aims to raise awareness and facilitate conversation among the University community to mark the achievements of Black people through history and today, and we are delighted to support this initiative. There is a great assortment of books, which we’re sure you’ll find interesting.

If there are any queries about the display, please  contact Nicola Moncur: (nicola.moncur@ed.ac.uk)

Many thanks to Shenxiao Tong, Maria & Agnieszka from Collections Management and Melissa Moncrieffe from EUSA for making this possible.
