Black History Month

According to The History Channel Black History Month Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. 

Here at Main Street Books we want to make it a little easier to bring these amazing feats into the homes of our bookstore family with a 10% savings on all our Black History Month titles. We have a wonderful display in front of the store for your convenience and will gladly order some of your favorites in and still honor the 10% savings for you throughout the month of February.

My favorite historic figure? I would have to say it's a toss up between Martin Luther King and Harriet Beacher Stowe BUT that is the sad part-- my generation didn't learn about many more than these two. We hope we can help your kids discover a little more ...
