From the Middle Passage to "Coming to America": Our Rich African History

For the past four years, we have selected 1-2 books, one written for new and emerging readers, and the other for advanced readers on the upper elementary, middle and high school levels. This year, we have selected a variety of books to offer more information and exposure through the sharing of research and final projects with other participants; thus increasing their knowledge base and awareness of their rich heritage and culture. These books should be part of every household library.

These  2024 books have been selected and assigned participants based on their age and developmental levels, abilities , and interests areas.
The books are connected in that they all represent periods of time in our rich African history that reflect our early beginnings, a middle passage, and  “coming to America” experiences, which were omitted from the history we were taught in our schools. Today, we still witness elements of our past history entwined, sometimes subtly, sometimes overtly, in plain sight, into the fabric of our lives today.
