Black History Month Resources

To celebrate Black History Month, we have compiled an ongoing list of black resources recommended by UWSA directors, staff and UofW students. You can find different local organizations and businesses to support, books to read, influences to follow, and much more. For a more exhaustive list, check out the databases at the bottom of the page!
