Black History, Black Heroes

As part our learning during Black History month, we are reading a selection from Book of Black Heroes from A to Z by Wade Hudson and Valerie Wesley. It is by no means an exhaustive book, but it allows us to read a little about different heroes every day. The nice thing about this particular book is that the entries serve as introductions. They are short, but provide enough information to pique one's interest. I am going to then have each of the girls choose the person they are most interested in learning more about. We will then check out biographies from the library, and at the end of the month each girl will make a poster for her Black Hero. (Each poster will reflect the age and ability of the maker!)
