CELEBRATING BLACK HISTORY MONTH
This year we're excited to celebrate Black History Month by bringing together a month of black author programming, launching new diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives, providing curated book lists and resources, and continuing our own work with the Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion firm: Prismatic.
As we enter Black History Month during our company's 50th anniversary year, we aim to amplify underrepresented voices and perspectives to make tangible changes and forward progress that allows for Tattered Cover to continue to grow, learn, and serve as a haven for knowledge, community, and conversation for the next 50 years.
