Celebration and Remembrance: Children’s Books About Black Lives

This collection includes a comic-book re-telling of real Wild West characters, plus picture book biographies of a young boy who shipped himself to freedom during the Civil War, a teenage Civil Right activist, a trailblazing pilot, a brilliant writer — and a sensitive but honest retelling of the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921. You’ll also meet Kenny in a picture book about the pleasures of everyday activities, and Milo, who realizes on a subway ride to visit his Mom that you can’t really know anyone just by looking at them.
