Honoring Black History Month

We choose to honor Black History Month by continuing to educate ourselves with books about the African American experience in Detroit and across the country. Some of the following titles are a part of our African American Life Series, which publishes scholarship representative of the historical, social, cultural, and economic experiences of African Americans. Because Wayne State University Press is located in Detroit, the series has a particular interest in topics related to urban life and culture. For a full list of titles in African American Studies, take a look at our new subject catalog, here
