It's February and time to celebrate Black History Month. From picture books to novels, fiction lets us explore the world from different points of view. Reading books from authors of different cultures and backgrounds can help us learn and understand history (and hopefully ourselves as well).
This list contains books by contemporary black authors as well as books which feature black characters and community in history. The list includes picture books, graphic novels, early chapter books and longer novels as well.
