February has been recognized as Black History Month all across the country going back to 1976. It originated out of “Negro History Week” which was created by historian Carter G. Woodson and other important African Americans. Woodson wrote these wise words-

“If a race has no history, it has no worthwhile tradition, it becomes a negligible factor in the thought of the world, and it stands in danger of being exterminated. The American Indian left no continuous record. He did not appreciate the value of tradition; and where is he today? The Hebrew keenly appreciated the value of tradition, as is attested by the Bible itself. In spite of worldwide persecution, therefore, he is a great factor in our civilization.”

February is a great month to include the study of important African Americans and the history surrounding their lives into your history studies. Literature is the perfect way to do this! This book list contains stories about prominent African American that grade school all the way up to high school students can learn a lot from.
