As we wrap up this year's Black History Month, it's important that we all continue this energy throughout the rest of the year! So much of Black history is skipped in standard schooling which makes it important for parents to show their children the amazing contributions Black people have made to this country. It's also important that Black children see themselves reflected in America's history. Below are a few resources from books to clothing and museums that you can use to get the conversation going!

4. African American Museums
The National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington D.C. is the country's largest and most comprehensive museum for Black History! Let me tell you, it's amazing!! Even if you can't make it to D.C. most major cities have an African American museum that you and your family can visit!

Let your kids color while you talk to them about the history of the page. There are tons of resoures online where you can print coloring pages for your little ones! I love searching on Pinterest but a quick Google search will give you endless options.
