Preserving Black Books

Season 2021 Episode 23

About the Episode

Books by authors of color are vanishing from the shelves of libraries and stores. This is a cumulative effect from campaigns banning books with controversial subjects, the shuttering of independent bookshops facing hardship, and readers' increasing preference for convenient digital formats. We examine and discuss the importance of preserving books and literature by African American authors.
