Shortest month of the year #HBBlackHistoryMonth16

The Horn Book celebrates Black History Month

As our #HBBlackHistoryMonth16 coverage comes to a close, here is a reminder that these articles by and about African American children's literature luminaries should be read by everyone, everywhere, everyday, not just during the shortest month of the year.

In the meantime, we'll keep updating our Horn Book Talking About Race resource page. We've already gotten started compiling a set of new and archival Horn Book material for #HBBlackHistoryMonth17. Everyone keep talking and listening.
