Black History Month

Black History Month

Fun and interesting books about the influential African Americans that ended segregation in the United States.

By Jamie McElroy

      Black History Month celebrates the outstanding achievements and sacrifices made by people like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, and the civilians to end racial segregation. Their efforts not only changed life for their generation but many generations to come. These books do a beautiful job of telling important messages in a simple and easy to understand format, also accompanied by fantastic illustrations.

Another fun way to learn about Black History Month is with music. See our partner site’s collection of Black History Month songs at SongsForTeaching.com.
