Overview

Show kids ages 8 to 12 how Black Americans shaped US history in the 20th century

From fighting against discrimination to changing the landscape of art and music, discover the incredible ways that Black Americans influenced the world we live in today. Spanning the 1900s through the 2000s, this journey through history introduces kids to the struggles and triumphs of Black people in the United States through 30 defining moments of the 20th century.

Over the course of five easily digestible "eras," kids will learn about the founding of the NAACP, the Harlem Renaissance, the Tulsa Race Massacre, the March on Washington, the rise of the Black Power Movement, Jesse Jackson's voter registration drive, and more.

Go beyond other American history books for kids with:

  • An event-driven approach—A focus on putting things into context, not just memorizing names and numbers, allows kids to engage with history.
  • Key callouts—Handy sidebars call special attention to important information and inspiring, influential Black history makers.
  • Clear explanations—Each event is explored in a straightforward manner that makes it easy for kids to understand what occurred and why.

Help kids discover the many ways that Black Americans have shaped the world they live in today.
