City to Give Away Free Books to Celebrate Black History Month

To celebrate Black culture and history, the City of College Park is giving away free copies of two books that embrace Blackness and help address racism.

“Hair Love” by Matthew A. Cherry is a children’s book that highlights elements of Black culture, which have often been excluded or negatively portrayed in mainstream media. “The Racial Healing Handbook” by Dr. Anneliese A. Singh is a handbook for adults to raise the consciousness of race and racism, challenge internalized negative messages, and heal from stress and trauma related to discrimination. The books are intended to spark mindful conversations, with children and adults.

For each book, the City has included several discussion prompts for individuals and families to aid in discussion and critical thinking. The City hopes these books will help create spaces for productive conversations.
