IMG_0043October is Black History Month, but Black history is important no matter the month.

However, it is a chance to turn to our LRC collections to see whether we are providing information for everybody. We would like to highlight our new books that focus on people and cultures who haven’t received adequate visibility in our mainly White-centred literary and academic world. At Hillcroft we acquire resources that are reflective of students’ various backgrounds and ethnicity whilst being of interest and importance to studies and lives. We are always open to suggestions for authors to try out, so keep your eyes peeled for new books and other resources to suggest too.

Here’s our list of new resources to find out more about the people, history and heritage from West Africa, the US and Britain:

Fiction: From Pasta to Pigfoot (England and Ghana), Ghana Must Go (United States, Britain, Ghana and Nigeria)

DVDs: Half of a Yellow Sun (Nigeria), Skin (South Africa)

Poetry: Citizen (United States), Evolution (England)

Non-fiction: Looking for Transwonderland (England and Nigeria), Black British Intellectuals.

Let us know what you think of our new books and DVDs.
