Welcome to Black History Month! Learn about and celebrate the accomplishments of Black Americans throughout history! Start right here in New York City with The Book Itch: Freedom, Truth & Harlem’s Greatest Bookstore, written by Vauda Micheaux Nelson and illustrated by R. Gregory Christie. Learn how Lewis Michaux—yep, the author’s grand-uncle—founded the National Memorial African Bookstore and used it to foster new ideas and help people stand up for their rights. After the story, make your own book about equality, love, and other things that are important to you!
