We just received these new titles for our collection. All of the books are a donation from editorial EDP University of P.R. Inc. Six of the seven titles are authored by Puerto Rican writer Yolanda Arroyo Pizarro. The EDP notes that “her work promotes amazing lessons of social justice and equality among all human beings.” The seventh title is by Spanish author Rosario Méndez Panedas. Entitled Historias de Mujeres Puertorriquieñas Negras, this book includes a chapter on Pura Belpre. If you don’t know who she is, run, don’t walk to come in and check out this book!
This donation was made possible by the generous efforts of a library member. We are very grateful to have these new books in recognition of African American History.
