A Few Words...

 

 

February 2017

Happy Black History Month! In honor of this month, I’d like to celebrate the many African American writers who have inspired, uplifted, impacted the world of children’s literature and celebrated a culture rich in talent and gifts and history. While there are too many to name, some of my favorites are listed below:

Sharon Draper, Andrea Davis Pinkney, Renee Watson, Carole Boston Weatherford, Jacqueline Woodson, Kwame Alexander, Jason Reynolds, Sharon Flake, Nikki Grimes, Walter Dean Myers, Patricia McKissack, Angela Johnson, Ashley Bryan, Julius Lester, Mildred Taylor, Lucille Clifton, Christopher Paul Curtis and the late Virginia Hamilton.

 

Thank you all for your words that have guided me through the years.

Lesa
