Books We Love for Black History Month

Books We Love for Black History Month

FEBRUARY 2ND, 2021

It’s February, and in honor of Black History Month, we’re sharing 3 exceptional books about Black History. We chose these books because they can help girls understand the history of this country, learn about successful Black women that haven’t always received the attention they deserve, and consider their own role and power, even as children. These books can be read individually at any time, but we like the idea of reading all three this month.

Here are our selections:
The Youngest Marcher tells the story of nine-year-old Audrey Faye Hendricks, the youngest person to be arrested at a civil rights protest in Birmingham, Alabama. When Audrey overheard grownups talking about taking action to end segregation, she knew immediately that she wanted to get involved. By focusing on the role of a child, this book shows that even children can create change.
This picture book recounts the history of the United States of America, with a focus on the role of Black Americans. It’s a long read, but includes invaluable information about the American Revolution, slavery, abolition, women’s suffrage, WWII, Jim Crow, and much much more.
This New York Times bestseller tells the stories of 40 history-making women. The book includes beautiful illustrations by Vashti Harrison and one-page biographies of abolitionist Sojourner Truth, pilot Bessie Coleman, poet Maya Angelou, astronaut Dr. Mae Jamison, and more.
We hope you find these books informative and inspiring.
