Black History Month Resources

I know it's halfway through the month already, but I wanted to share a few great resources for studying African American history.
Awesome Stories: "Enjoy an interactive learning experience as you see thousands of hand-selected and relevant links to pictures, artifacts, manuscripts, documents and other primary sources, IN CONTEXT, within each story." This is a huge site with tons and tons of information! If you haven't seen it, it is well worth looking at. You have to sign up for a free membership to access everything on the site. I signed up for the academic membership without any problems. Here are some of the Awesome Stories links related to Black History Month:
For Older Students:
For Younger Students:
About Africa:
You can tell that I'm really impressed with what PBS has to offer for African American history. If you are interested, you can find a lot of wonderful information by doing a Google search. I haven't completely gone through all of these sites, so please use discretion and do some previewing!

Although this post highlights free resources for Black History Month, I would be remiss if I didn't mention that Belinda, one of the bloggers here at HSB, has written a Christ-centered literature-based curriculum that focuses on African American history. Her products and samples are available at A Blessed Heritage. We are currently studying the Age of Exploration, Renaissance and Reformation using Tapestry of Grace, and I have been adding in and/or substituting some of Belinda's literature recommendations. I think her curriculum is going to be a valuable addition to our history studies.
