This is my Black History Month top 10 book recommendations. I really like the list of books chosen.

Please note some of the teen books listed may have include some sexual or violent language or profanities as they are geared towards older teens or it is aimed at reflecting a realistic view of our society. Please watch the reviews beforehand and read commentaries before buying the book for your children.
