Librarians and Teachers: What Books Are You Displaying for Black History Month?

Black_History_Month_Shelfie_600.pngLast year, we asked you to share your curriculum ideas for teaching Black History month, and you delivered. This year, we're asking you to show, not tell.

Are you planning a bookshelf or school library display to celebrate Black History Month? We want to see it. Send us a picture of the books and resources you're using to celebrate the month. We'll feature a selection of the images you send us.

Either Tweet us your pictures using the hashtag #BlackHistoryBookshelf or email them to [email protected].

Check back for inspiration from your fellow educators and librarians in the coming month. In the meantime, look back on creative resources and advice for bringing black history to life in the classroom throughout the month of February—and beyond. After all, teaching the history and contributions of African-Americans should be a year-round pursuit.
