Celebrate Black History Month

In honor of Black History Month, every week the Reinberger Children’s Library Center will share some of our favorite books that celebrate Black history and culture. We will also be sharing interviews each Friday from Reading Rockets with influential Black authors and illustrators. Today we will begin with a selection of fiction and non-fiction books that focus on important individuals and moments in Black history. Don’t forget to check out the Brown Bookshelf’s 28 Days Later where they honor an outstanding Black children’s book creator each day of the month at http://thebrownbookshelf.com/28-days-later/.
