Celebrate Black History 2022

As we observe and celebrate Black History Month, I would like to jumpstart your family conversations about diversity, inclusion and the tough topic of racism in America.  I have culled book titles from resources like the Oakland Public Library, Amazon, and my own bookshelf.  They are provided below.  I also invite you to view my video series on cultivating cultural awareness in children. See links below.

So, start talking!
