Black History Month Books For Children

My Top Fifteen

I write about Black History for adults. Children don’t need to start by hearing about the atrocities and the evil nature of enslavement. They do need to start learning about Black History and the achievements of Black people not usually found in test books.

Stories in this publication will focus on Black History and a little White History that has been distorted. We’ll focus on people and policies and the impact they continue to have on America today.
