Inspiring Black Children’s Books To Read Right Now

My children get to grow up reading books with beautiful black kids in the stories. By the way, if your looking for a black owned book store to support check out Alkebu-Lan Images located in Nashville, TN near Tennessee State University. You can also shop their store online. Here’s a few books we’re reading by Black Authors this Black History Month and honestly all year long.

This time my wife, Tiarra saw it firsthand and was just heartbroken.
