Black History Month Ends?

Hi everyone,

welcome to the last official day of Black History Month; official because in my opinion the celebration of the Black heritage, as with any other heritage month, never really begins and never really ends. Don’t we all celebrate our history year long?

In case you missed it, I’d like to share some amazing posts. Please, visit the blogs mentioned. You’d be so glad you did:

1- YA Highway: Writing Race in YA: Guest Post by Nicola K. Richardson

2- Teen Writers Bloc: Black History Month Round-Up Question: The Color of Universal Narrative Experience

3- Black History Month: A Teacher’s Perspective, by Nicole Weaver

4- C.O.L.O.R. Needs Your Help, by Ari from Reading in Color. C.O.L.O.R. stands for Coalition of Librarians and Online readers. Excerpt: “From February-April we are sending at least 25 books to Arlington Community High School in Indianapolis (about 90% Black), which needs a little TLC. Currently we have sent over 14 books. 11 more to go, please help!”

5- Interview with Jacqueline Woodson, by Doret at the Happy Nappy Bookseller

6- Color Online

7- The Brown Bookshelf and 28 Days Later, which concludes today.

8- PaperTigers.Org: Latest News from IBBY (International Board on Books for Young People), by Corinne

There are, of course, many more. Is there a post you read this month you wish every knew about? Please, share its link with your comment…
