Great Reads for Black History Month

instagram Black History Month Reading

This month I have seen a variety of suggestions for family books to read during Black History Month. While February does hold a special place in the hearts of my family, we celebrate African American history all year. I’ve cultivated a list of books from around the internet that  you and your family can enjoy until February of 2017! Happy reading!

This post contains affiliate links and some of the books below include topics for older children. Please review and share with your family according to what you deem is age-appropriate.
