Black History Month
Laurren Chase

February is Black History Month. Annually, this month is devoted to the celebration of African American history, culture, and contributions.

While centering the experiences and voices of Black Americans it is important to learn not only about what has happened (and continues to happen) to them, but the richness of culture and joy cultivated by Black folks in spite of it. 

Start here by learning about Black American history through a series of videos by Clint Smith, teacher, doctor, and author of How the Word Is Passed: A Reckoning With the History of Slavery Across America on the CrashCourse YouTube channel. 

Visit the Eton School Library Resource Padlet to find book lists of titles by Black authors and illustrators to share with your children and family, and explore these adult titles by Black authors.

Don't let the end of February halt your learning! Black history is American history. Continuing to center Black voices and the Black experience is a necessary piece of building anti-racist and anti-bias spaces for a more equitable future.
