thumbnail Black History Month

by Liza Glowacki on March 1, 2023

Black History Month runs from February 1st to March 1st , and I thought it would be amazing to highlight some picture books dedicated to trailblazers, activists, and authors that redefined society and brought incredible contributions to our world. These books offer incredible illustrations and historical context for children and adults alike.
