Black History Month with OEP’s Read Alouds

The Read Aloud Project was created by Priscilla Weddle and Marie Benner-Rhoades to provide homeschooling resources in peace and justice during the pandemic. For the project, members of the community record themselves reading children’s books about peace, courage and justice. The response from the community has been great and we appreciate those who have participated. We have decided to extend the project through 2021. 

For February, the project will be highlighting books about the achievements of Black Americans along with books written by Black authors to celebrate Black History Month. If you are interested in participating in the project, please email Priscilla at [email protected].
