Black History: Slavery

Black History: Slavery

Heart and Soul

Featured Book: Heart and Soul History can be overwhelming. It’s hard to keep the people and places and dates straight. I really like Heart and Soul because the history unfolds like a story. In fact, the book is written like an old lady talking. It’s like listening to your Grandmother explain it.

This book shows how a country can go from thinking a black person was property to having a black president. It explains how changes were slowly made to help make that happen. And it has the BEST paintings. Author: Kadir Nelson

WeNeedDiverseBooks LogoTo get young people engaged, one of the things they need is to see themselves in books. It is important for all of us to see ourselves in books, because that encourages us to read in a different way and encourages us to write more.” ~ Dr. Jerrie Cobb Scott Founder of the African American Read-in #weneeddiversebooks
