February is Black History Month. It is a time to honor the rich and complex past while learning about how it has led to an equally important present, which in turn is the foundation for the future of Black people and their role in U.S. History. Springhurst Library Media Specialist Lauren Rodriguez, Middle/High School Library Media Specialist Ellen Elsen, and K-8 Literacy Coordinator Michelle Yang-Kaczmarek have teamed up with Dobbs Ferry Public Library Children’s Librarian Gina Elbert to create this resource list to help your classes dive deeper into Black History Month. Our hope is that this history will not just stay in February but will be celebrated all year long highlighting Black joy and excellence.
Below is a link to a sampling of resources available at the Dobbs Ferry public schools and in the DFPL; it is not an exhaustive list. If you would like help finding more, please contact your librarians.
