We think that every month should be Black History Month, but until we're a few steps closer to realizing Dr. Martin Luther King's dream, that honor belongs to February. Oddly, February is also when we ask a groundhog to prognosticate the weather, in an annual hoax that celebrates the American penchant for pageantry, hokum, and hucksterism. But Black history doesn't just pop its head up once a year to remind us that winter is still here. It's alive, complex, and unfolding every day. That history is too often hidden, and so today we highlight books from our backlist that shed much-needed light on the long, diverse, and complicated history of Black people in Oregon.
