Attention all book worms!
To help celebrate Black History Month we’re highlighting some fantastic page turners for you to check out.
We know the world is better with books. Right now, we need to read, celebrate and shout about Black literature more than ever because of what’s happening across the world.
We all have a part to play in challenging inequalities and standing up for what is right.
It’s important that we take responsibility and educate ourselves on topics like white privilege, police brutality, systemic discrimination and the Black Lives Matter movement. Books are an amazing, personal and thought-provoking way to do just that.
Whether you’re after fiction or non-fiction, we’ve got a ‘must read’ list packed with wonderful experiences, insight and imagination.
