Hundreds of libraries in communities across Sub-Saharan Africa will receive donated copies of “Africana: The Encyclopedia of the African and African-American Experience.”

The comprehensive encyclopedia on black history and culture was co-edited by Harvard professors Kwame Anthony Appiah and Henry Louis Gates Jr.

This donation of 2,400 books is made possible through a $150,000 grant from Citigroup in partnership with, Books For Africa, and Sabre Foundation.
