Black History Month: 28 Days: Moments in Black History That Changed the World


28 Days: Moments in Black History That Changed the World would have a been a great book for me to have posted at the beginning of the month. Sorry...

This book has a variety of formats that it presents the information in: narrative, poems, eulogies.

It includes not only people, but also events that affected all of us. Here are some examples:

Dred Scott
14th Amendment
Matthew Henson
Harriet Tubman - her death, but also tells what she did
Madam C J Walker's eulogy
Jesse Owens
Day Marian Anderson performs at Lincoln Memorial
Jackie Robinson
Brown vs. The Board of Education
Rosa Parks sits
Little Rock Nine attend Central High School

I hope you have enjoyed my review of picture books that can be used during Black History Month!
