Black History Month 2023: resources from the Templeman Library

Black History Month: saluting our sisters panel

The University of Kent, Information Services and Kent Union are working together to celebrate 2023’s Black History Month.

Check out our resources list, featuring 120 books, films, websites, and classic and modern fiction and non-fiction, from all over the world which explore what it means to be Black both historically and in the world today.

The theme this year is ‘Saluting Our Sisters’ and we have added a whole new exciting section called ‘Sisterhood’ for you to check out.

Some of these books are available to borrow from the Templeman or the Drill Hall Libraries and will be on display throughout October, whilst others you will need to source yourself.
