Books Celebrating Black History

February 22, 2017

Librarian Joy Fleishhacker curates a list of middle grade and YA books that invite readers to authentically study the lives of black men and women in US history.

The list contains biographies, narrative nonfiction, and historical narrative poetry.   


Thoughtfully written and handsomely presented, these recently published books for middle grade and high school students invite readers to dig into the past and explore the historical events, personal perspectives, and challenges and achievements that have contributed to the black experience in the United States (School Library Journal).
