Here are also some links to a few of my favorite African-American authors' and illustrators' websites:
- Walter Dean Myers (http://www.walterdeanmyers.net/)
- Jerry Pinkney (http://www.jerrypinkneystudio.com)
- Christopher Paul Curtis (http://www.randomhouse.com/features/christopherpaulcurtis/)
- Rita Williams-Garcia (http://www.ritawg.com/)
- Nikki Grimes (http://www.nikkigrimes.com/)
- Sharon Draper (http://sharondraper.com/)
For my students and teachers, reading African-American literature is a part of daily life, but it's nice to highlight it with special events during this month too. Enjoy!
