Students will learn more about America’s thriving Black communities, from Tulsa’s Black Wall Street to Allensworth, California. These towns and neighborhoods are often ignored in discussions on Black America and their success was often met with resistance–often violent resistance. This book illuminates the achievement and culture of these communities, while exploring racism in a comprehensive, honest, and age-appropriate way. Developed in conjunction with educator, advocate, and author Kelisa Wing to reach children of all races and encourage them to approach our history with open eyes and minds.
