U.S. Black History for Kids and the Classroom

These are just a few recommended titles on Black history for children. For more titles on Black history in the U.S. and around the world, see related lists for more titles including Africa, Afro-Latino, Brown v. Board of Education, Civil Rights Movement, Selma, slavery and resistance, and SNCC.

Your support of Teaching for Change's non-profit online bookstore allows us to continue to build our lists of the best multicultural and social justice children's books. Wherever you buy your books, we encourage you to support indie bookstores (like ours) and boycott Amazon.
