There are 13 guiding principles of the Black Lives Matter movement. We seek to expand student understanding of these principles through the Black Lives Matter at School Week of Action (scheduled for the first week of February each year) and beyond. Below you’ll find a growing list of recommended titles that center each of the Black Lives Matter 13 Guiding Principles, as well as additional recommended booklists.
The lists of children’s books below were compiled by Teaching for Change and are made available via the Social Justice Books collection at Bookshop.
For teachers, we recommend these key texts: Teaching for Black Lives and Black Lives Matter at School: An Uprising for Educational Justice.
