Poems and stories from Harlem and the Deep South by Langston Hughes (1902-1967).
History began one minute ago. By the time I get to the bottom of this page the first paragraph will be history. When you are looking for something to inspire someone you do not have to go to the 1900’s or the 1800’s. While there certainly are many books to celebrate from “long ago” do not overlook current books about the past.
I recently crossed paths with Ron Stodghill. He is the author of a new book about HBCU’s. I know I said this collection was for 2nd and 3rd graders so get it, read it and share it with them!
