Black history month

Black History Month

The United States and Canada observe Black History month in February; the United Kingdom observes it in October. While the commemorative month is a good time to celebrate the achievements and culture of the black community, this focus should not be limited to only one month. Students will benefit learning of the accomplishments and struggles of people of color at any time of the year. This reading set includes all grade levels and multiple topics.
