Black History Month 4 Kids

How to Begin Talking to Kids About Black History

Did you know that February is Black History Month?

Do you know what that means? (Don’t push them if they don’t know, it’s okay.)

It means that we are going to spend time remembering the ways that African-Americans helped our country to grow and be great.

A lot of times, in books, movies, and on tv, people forget to talk about how African-Americans worked to build America, too, so we have this month to make sure we can remember.

I’m going to read some books to you about Black history, and we’re going to watch some movies, too. Black history is our history, too. We’re Americans, so it’s important that we take time to learn more about it. I’m excited! Are you? (Mama Knows It All)
