African-American History Books Shine

Celebrate Black History Month with award-winning books for kids.

February is Black History Month!

History has long been one of the strongest subject areas for the National Geographic Kids book publishing program. Recently, we have been garnering high praise for our titles on African-American history. Given the racial issues facing the nation and the world today, these are important books for young people to read.

This gallery includes some of our top-selling titles and their accolades. Find books for kids of all ages on topics ranging from slavery to civil rights to social injustice.
