Now while I knew I was not the only one who reviews mainly books about diverse people, I had no substantive proof. Frankly, myself, and this community of multicultural book lovers highlight these books year-round. In honor of this Black History Month, I am the highlighting educators, bloggers, and organizations who not only promote books about Black History, but help provide access to them. Now most of the celebration will be on my organization’s Facebook page, but I will be posting the links, and ‘reblogging’ pertinent posts from them here.
I kicked off the celebration yesterday with educator Ella Johnson, who has given over 1,000 books to children through give-aways over the past 4 years. View her blog “Mymcbooks” on WordPress. In addition to books, she provides the public with great reviews of books.
I hope you enjoy this celebration of Black leadership, exemplified by the work of everyday heroes online, in schools, and in the community.
