February is Black History Month, and I thought it would be interesting to explore what our library has to offer on the subject over the next four weeks.
The first book I would like to share is called The Patchwork Path: A Quilt Map to Freedom written by Bettye Stroud and illustrated by Erin Bennett. The book tells the story of a young girl and her father running for their freedom and the special quilt and its hidden code that helped them along the Underground Railroad.
You can learn more about the Underground Railroad at these sites:
and last link for this week, you could watch Historica Minute on Underground Railroad.
