    Black history cannot and should not be relegated to one month. The contributions of Black people to the history of this country — to the history of the world — are far too expansive and significant to be accurately recognized during the shortest month of the year. But, we have Black History Month as something of a historical correction for the countless decades when black contributions were ignored, dismissed, or devalued. What should we read to recognize this month and enrich our understanding of Black history? There is no singular list of recommendations, but here I offer 10 reading opportunities that, I hope, offer empathy and insight into the Black experience.
