Learning about black history is important for children and adults of any age. And while February is officially Black History Month, it is important that we learn about and celebrate it all year long. One way that we can teach our students about black history is with culturally diverse books that we can add to our classroom libraries, lessons, and read alouds. These engaging black history books for kids showcase the importance of black culture, diversity, and stories from some of the past’s most influential black men and women!
