45 Black History Month Resources for Homeschoolers

Each year during Black History Month, I search high and low for resources that will help me teach my kids about their culture and history. Although we talk about it often in our home, there’s just nothing quite like reading an account of our forefathers’ struggles and successes, watching a video, then creating a lapbook about it all.  These kinds of hands-on activities make learning about our heritage come alive for us.

After a few years of scouring the web for ideas, I’ve finally found a few tested, tried, and true Black History Month resources that actually work for us. Among these resources are printables, documentaries, video and audio clips, apps, and curriculum.

If you are looking for some ideas about what to teach your kids during Black History Month this year, you should have a nice jump-start with fresh ideas for bringing Black History Month resources into your homeschool.

So, there you go – 45 resources to help you uncover much of the history of African Americans.

I hope this is super helpful to you in planning your black history month resources this February. Let us know if you use any of these materials, and how it’s working for you!
