Women's History Month
We welcome March and the annual month-long celebration of women. In 1978, the school district of Sonoma, California, decided to hold a “Women’s History Week” to educate its students on the contributions women have made in our society. Ten years later, this celebration became a nationally recognized month-long occasion dedicated to recognizing the important roles women have played throughout our history, and to empowering the women in our lives today. Women have always been resourceful, courageous trail blazers who deserve recognition - from Sojourner Truth and Claudette Colvin, to Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Kamala Harris, women have been a driving force behind making this country what it is today.
Black History Month
Celebrated every February, this became a national celebration in 1976. It seems more important than ever to claim black history as American history. This month, we are invited to pause and recognize the too-many-to-count black Americans who have helped shape our nation in so many important and wonderful ways.
We are marking the pause by celebrating the month with a focus on makers of color. Some are local to the DMV, others from around the country. We’ve listed just a few below, but there are many more creatives represented on our shelves. Come browse, we know you’ll find our curated collection inspiring.
