Help your children learn about an important part of our culture and history with these books that celebrate key African-American figures.

Do you have any of these books or other suggestions?

 When I was in 5th grade our teacher read, out loud, over the course of about a month "Roll of Thunder Hear my Cry" by Mildred Taylor. I highly recomend it for older children.

I have heard of some of those. The quilt one sounds very familiar. We have "Aunt Harriet's Underground Railroad In The Sky". It's also by Faith Ringgold. I read it as a kid and when I saw it in a bookstore a couple years ago I got it for my kids. They don't understand some of it yet but it's a good learning opportunity. On a recent trip to Madame Tussaud's the boys got to see a wax figure of Harriet Tubman. They were excited and interested to see her after reading about her. There was also a figure of Martin Luther King Jr and I explained a little about him too when they asked.

Alex got a children's book about Obama for his 2nd birthday a few years ago - his party happened to fall the same day as Obama's first inauguration, so it was an appropriate gift  :)
