Black Boy Joy: Books Highlighting The Everyday Life of Being a Black Boy


Children's books featuring African American boys often focus on the struggles they face at the hands of an often unjust society.  While it's important for children to understand the history of America and the work that is still left to be done, that isn't the entire existence of their childhoods. 

There is also joy. Everyday, loving, and fulfilling, JOY.
