ALA Organizations Collaborate on a Black Lives Matter Comics Reading List

ALA’s Graphic Novels and Comics Round Table (GNCRT) and the Black Caucus of the American Library Association (BCALA) teamed up to create a Black Lives Matter Comics Reading List to help draw attention to black experiences in the past and present that will lead to the demand for a better future. They intend to continue to grow the list and provide it as a resource for educators, parents, and readers of all ages. Suggest titles by emailing GNCRT at with the subject line, “Black Lives Matter Reading List,” or use the following hashtags on social media: #bcala, #libcomix, and #BlackLivesMatter.

The press release states, “Comic books have always been political. They are both a reflection and a barometer of our times. From the first appearance of Captain America in March 1941 punching the face of Hitler, to recent titles like I am Alfonso Jones and MARCH—titles tackling police brutality and the life story of Congressman John Lewis—comic books have been and continue to be vitally important avenues to visually tell our stories, to share our histories, and to show experiences and multiple perspectives while engaging both sides of our brain.”

For more information, read the press release.
