Two Good Books That Will Make Black History Month More Meaningful

February is Black History Month.  Here are two good books that your students will enjoy!

African American colors with title "Two lesser-known books worth exploring for Black History Month"

Never Caught tells a little-known story about some well-known people.  Your students probably have not heard of Ona Judge.  But they have heard about George and Martha Washington.  Click below to read my review.

Finding Langston is a beautifully told historical fiction novel about a young boy's move from Alabama to Chicago, following the death of his mother in 1946.  Away from everything familiar to him, he finds a safe haven in the local library, where he learns about the "other" Langston.  You can read my review here.
