“Where can I find black children’s books?” It’s a question asked by kids, parents, teachers, librarians and other readers. The Brown Bookshelf was founded a decade ago to advocate for more visibility and support and to be a go-to resource. Through our signature campaign, 28 Days Later, we’ve featured more than 200 black children’s book creators. Today, we are proud to announce our 10th class of honorees.
For this milestone, we’re using a special format. Each week of our Black History Month celebration will showcase a different theme. We’ll kick off the party with creators of books for younger readers. Next, we’ll highlight ones with titles for older children and teens, those with outstanding social justice books and end with authors and illustrators who have inspired us on our personal journeys.
Stay tuned for exciting news, resources and partnerships throughout our anniversary year. Our first surprise . . . Drum roll please . . . TeachingBooks.nethas created this free link full of multimedia resources by each our 2017 honorees. Thank…
