Civil Rights Then and Now

A Timeline of Past and Present Social Justice Issues in America (Black History Book For Kids)

«

“At a time when our nation is engaged in discourse about the need to present history in a truthful and vulnerable manner, this book serves as a beacon for parents and educators who are trying to engage in difficult but necessary conversations.

“As an educator, what strikes me most about the writing in this book is the sheer truth of it. The author has managed to present past and present events in a surprisingly honest and informative way, while still writing in child-friendly language. Normally, by the time events make it to history books, they have been homogenized, clarified, watered down, and made insipid enough to cause a superficial understanding of important events. Not so with this book.

“This book has already opened dialogue and inspired lessons for me and the students I serve. I am very excited to have it as a tool for contemplation and, hopefully, change.”

—Lorri Giovinco-Harte, assistant principal of English Language Arts at Harry S. Truman High School in the Bronx, New York

Om forfatteren

Kristina Brooke Daniele (pronounced Dan-YELL-ee) is a homeschooling mom, education consultant, former classroom teacher, freelance writer, and serial entrepreneur. As an English teacher at Harry S Truman High School in The Bronx, New York, Kristina worked to increase the literacy skills of high schoolers who were often ignored by the system. Rather than rote memorization, Kristina engaged them in discussions of the real world and worlds within literature, preferring to aim for a holistic approach rather than just on their test scores. Her experience in the classroom informed her decision to homeschool her daughter. Both motivate her to continue to produce material that centers Black people within American History rather than as a footnote. Kristina resides in Arizona with her husband and daughter. Woo!

That is why we have provided thousands of craft ideas, printables, and teacher resources to over 55 million people since 2008.

Ed earned a bachelor’s degree in education from Barry University.
