book cover Celebrate African American History Month with Random House, Inc.

Since 1926, The Association for the Study of African American Life and History has established the national theme for the month-long celebration. This year's theme is "Black Women in American Culture and History."

In addition to Black Women for Beginners—an ideal book for this year's theme—we are happy to suggest these other great, graphic non-fiction titles also from the For Beginners imprint: African History for Beginners and Black History for Beginners. And don't miss these great graphic offerings from the Campfire Books line as well: Muhammad Ali: The King of the Ring and Nelson Mandela: The Unconquerable Soul.

Celebrate African American History Month with your students by sharing these titles from Knopf Doubleday: The Warmth of Other Suns, the decades-long migration of black citizens who fled the South for northern and western cities, in search of a better life; The Grace of Silence, a memoir that boldly examines racial legacy and what it means to be an American, and Life Upon These Shores, a landmark book tracing African American history from the arrival of the conquistadors to the election of Barack Obama.

Feel free to browse our African American History Month calendar page for more suggestions.
