Black History Month was first created by historian Carter G. Woodson in 1926 as “Negro History Month,” a time when people were encouraged to honor and celebrate the often overlooked accomplishments of black Americans throughout history—including in literature. While the name has changed over time, the sentiment has stayed the same.

Add these eight new children’s books by black authors and illustrators to your kids' shelves this month—and read them all year long.
