SPOKANE, Wash. — February is Black History Month, and Spokane Public Library has put together a list of videos, events and books to reflect on the history of Black people in America.

Videos include “The Many Ways of Wakanda: Viewpoint Diversity and Its Implications for Civics Education,” presented by Dr. Justin Martin of Whitworth University, performances from Spokane’s Neema African Youth Choir, and poetry from local artist Stephen Pitters.

There are also virtual events you can register for, including a meet-the-artist event with Tracy Poindexter-Canton on February 23, a virtual book club meeting to discuss “Freshwater” by Akwaeke Emezi on February 24, and “I Am, Thurgood Marshall: Ageless Lessons of a Civil Rights Giant and a Life Well-Spent” on February 25.
