Black History Month Reading List

BHM Social and inner image 2

Black History Month celebrated each February is an opportunity to teach all students about Black history, achievements of Black Americans and movements led by Black leaders, and celebrate Black culture. In our last blog post, we explored how at Green Tree School and Services we are using the theme, Power of Belonging, to drive our lesson planning and curriculum, with the intention of helping students understand past events and how they impact and show up in today’s world.  

Today, we’re excited to share our Black History Month reading list. The publications below will supplement and support the learning taking place in and outside of the classroom.
