On February 3, 2020, the Commission launched its Trailblazing Book Fairies initiative in celebration of Black History Month.

In partnership with The Book Fairies and The Little Free Library, two nonprofits focused on providing communities with free books, the Commission placed 120 books about Black suffragists throughout the nation’s capital for community members to discover. The books distributed included Ida: A Sword Among Lions by Paula Giddings, She Came to Slay: The Life and Times of Harriet Tubman by Erica Armstrong Dunbar, and Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History by Vashti Harrison. Each book contained a special Trailblazing Book Fairies bookmark as a commemorative keepsake for readers.
