Black History Month: Books Available at Shepherd University

Welcome to the Black History Month Resource Guide: In honor of February being Black History Month, we are highlighting a number of African American resources that are available through Scarborough Library, in addition to a variety of web resources.

Our Collection

The Scarborough Library has a broad range of materials by and about African Americans. Materials on African American history aren't located in one single section of the Library; resources are found across the collection, in history, art, literature, music, and film. This is a small selection of titles available through the Scarborough Library in both print and digital formats.
