As a celebration of Black History Month, February 2018, Middlebury College's Davis Family Library has initiated a series of oral interviews, "In Your Own Words." In them, Literatures & Cultures Librarian Katrina Spencer engages members of the community who trace their origins to the broad black diaspora(s) of the world. Listen to senior Kizzy Joseph share her thoughts in her own words. Kizzy recommends The Autobiography of Malcolm X, Ta-Nehisi Coates' Between the World and Me, Audre Lorde, bell hooks and Patricia Hill Collins for readers who are interested in learning more on race and ethnicity. The documentary Kizzy references is the BBC's The Story of Funk: One Nation Under A Groove.
