Black History Month Library

This is a massive repository of pdfs of books. I don’t know anything about it or who compiled it besides somebody named “Charles” owns it in google drive. I came about it via a comment thread started by a facebook friend asking for african american history syllabi and someone said “i saw this on my feed.”

I want to make a quest to mirror all of the files somewhere not on google drive, but I have so many quests open.

Maybe I’ll take a cue from maiki and make sub-quests to look through all the folders, like the posts about awesome-lists.

I’ll start by typing out the folders. They are a mix of authors’ names and topics.
