1) Read books by Black authors and illustrators
Libraries can make it easy to diversify the books you’re reading to your children. The next time you’re at the library, look for a section in the children’s area devoted to Black authors and illustrators. Make a habit of grabbing a couple of books from this section every time you visit the library. If your library doesn’t have a section like this, try asking a librarian to create one. Librarians are often open to suggestions from families.
2) Follow your child’s interests
3) Celebrate Black artists
Listen to music by Black musicians throughout history or visit a local art museum and ask about work by Black artists and related programming.
4) Visit a Black History museum
We hope one of these ideas works for your family.
