Black History Month in the LEE Library

Students and teachers joined the LEE Library as we celebrated Black History Month by perusing our collection of fiction and nonfiction titles curated to highlight the experiences of African Americans. Students recommended books to be added to our display. One of the most popular checkouts from the fiction side of our display was the novel The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas.

Black History Month with ABC CLIO

The following is excerpted from NEISD Library Services: Are you looking for a source that provides multiple primary sources for teachers and students? Look no further than ABC-CLIO! During Black History Month, check out The American Mosaic: The African American Experience. Students can follow the history of voting rights from the Fifteenth Amendment during the Civil War and Emancipation time period, through the Rise of Jim Crow, and the Civil Right Movement, into the rise of urban politics into the present.

Teachers can select the spotlight on Working With Primary Sources, located on the home page. This resource provides tips and worksheets for analyzing a wide variety of primary sources, including art, speeches, editorial cartoons, government documents and more. Teaching students how to analyze a primary source gives them tools for presenting their own informed opinion on a topic, and prepares them for further research.
