It’s Black History Month! February is a time to celebrate past and present historical black figures that make up our rich history. Being a new mommy to a brown baby boy has placed my intentionality in overdrive. I feel that it is my duty to teach and provide resources to my child that teaches him about our history. With that being said, I have compiled a list of 20 Black History children’s books. With creating this list, it is my hope that this list will be a great resource to anyone wanting and willing to learn about the great figures in Black history.
