Black History: Children's Resources

In honor of Black History Month, SAPL Children's Librarians have created four guides to assist you in locating materials you'll enjoy not only in February but throughout the year.

African American Authors for Children  This guide highlights the works of ten outstanding Black authors.
African American Illustrators for Children  Like the authors guide, this resource brings the work of notable Black illustrators to your attention.
Black History for Children  Divided into four sections (Biography, Nonfiction, Historical Fiction and Picture Book Fiction), this guide shines a light on the struggles and the achievements of Black Americans.
Coretta Scott King Award  Updated annually, this guide provides direct links to award-winning books recognized for an appreciation of African American culture and universal human values.
