InclusioNado Promotes Black History Month with Educational Resources

Local Coronado organization InclusioNado is promoting Black History Month with a variety of educational resources for the Coronado community. The United States designates February as Black History Month to pay tribute to and focus on the contributions of the generations of African Americans who helped shape the nation. InclusioNado encourages Coronado to participate in this celebration of diversity.

As part of their Little Free Library book program, InclusioNado selected two books specifically for their relevance to Black History: Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston. Over 30 copies of each book have been distributed in Little Free Libraries around Coronado including locations at Christ Church, the Ferry Landing, Silver Strand military housing, Sunset Park beach, and the Coronado Community Center. The books are labeled with an InclusoNado sticker and a request for readers to “enjoy this book, talk about it with your friends and neighbors, and return to a Little Library for others to enjoy.”

InclusioNado also created a Black History Month flyer which lists over 30 recommended books and movies for elementary, middle, and high school students that celebrate Black culture and experiences. The flyer is available at the Coronado Public Library and at all libraries in the Coronado Unified School District.
