Free Black History Month Resources
We have not done a ton of learning in regards to Black History Month or famous African Americans but definitely intend to. My son gets very upset when learning just the slightest bit about slavery and the Civil War. I am very happy that he feels all people regardless of skin color should not be owned or mistreated. I know it will upset him greatly the more he learns about how cruel some people have been and can be. Nonetheless we will delve into this topic more and more each year.
I am sure that my family isn’t the only one wanting to have some free resources handy for Black History not just during February! I searched around to find some unique and easy to use resources.

My son is still very young but we’ve touched on some of these subjects this month. He has a very hard time comprehending discrimination based on skin color. It’s something he doesn’t recognize at all!
These are some great resources! I don’t typically do “black history month,” but I do incorporate these very important folks into our history studies. Always on the lookout for new books and info! Thanks! #BB100
