February is Black History Month, a great opportunity to focus on African American contributions to the American story, African American struggles, and the beauty, art, and talent of African American people.

At Likewise, we’ve compiled watch lists of Award-Winning Movies, great books to read during Black History Month, and books especially for young people. We also want to hear from you: what books, movies, podcasts, and shows would you recommend for Black History Month? Let us know on the app through your recommendations and lists. Likewise will also gather suggestions in the coming weeks through our Ask feature, and we can’t wait to see what our brilliant community recommends! Watch this space for Likewise community recommendations for Black History Month – we will update this post as the recs roll in. Here’s to broadening minds this month, and every month!
