Black History and Presence

During Black History Month, we want to not only remember Black history and literary classics but also recognize Black authors and storytellers today. Throughout the month we will be sharing special content that celebrates Black authors, literature, and culture in Texas and beyond.

This month, we’re looking forward to sharing cookbook recs, poetry, and community events — there may even be some Instagram takeovers on the horizon! While it may not be possible to feature the entire wealth of Black art in our community, this is a chance to introduce a few Black authors and storytellers, and, hopefully, open the door for readers to discover many more.

If there’s a Black author, past or present, that you would like the TBF community to know about, take a moment to share over on our Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter pages. If you’re interested in kicking off your reading this month with a Texas author and TBF alum, check out Bryan Washington’s Memorial, our February Book Club pick.
