Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. Every year, the San Diego Mesa College Library joins in the celebration by creating and curating a Black History Month Library Guide – filled with resources of what is available not only at the San Diego Mesa College Library, but through other community resources as well.   


“Between our Mesa College Library and Learning Resource Center, our Black Studies program and our amazing community partners, we have amassed a list of over 60,000 resources available for the campus and the broader community,” stated Dr. Edeama Onwuchekwa-Jonah, Mesa College Equity and Engagement Librarian.


The Mesa College Black History Library guide is designed to promote access to library and community information resources in order to illuminate, preserve, and increase information about Black History Month. This information resource intentionally focuses on Black communities in the United States and abroad to highlight the multiplicity of blackness and Black experiences.  


This guide has, in its contents, links to valuable resources such as books, eBooks, and films, links to notable collections nationwide such as websites archives, and museums. This guide also features topics on Black Wellness, health, and much more. These and many more resources are available to the San Diego Mesa College Community throughout the year, beyond Black History month, for both scholarly and personal enrichment.
