Kindle eBooks are great resources. You can read them on not only a Kindle, but also the PC, iDevices, and more. Frequently they have free books available. Right now is a free book that is a unit study for Black History.  I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but there is so much from that time period that is interesting.  Personally I am inspired by the people that risked everything to make it to freedom, and the families that risked everything to help them on their way.  One of my hobbies is quilting and I find it very interesting to read about how quilts were used to mark houses that were safe along the routes that run away slaves would take to freedom. Even after the Civil War the stories of segregation and people who came forward to make a change are inspiring.  I don't know how long this book will remain free, but if you get the chance to get a copy - this would make a great section for both home schools and teachers looking for resources for black history month.  (Also for individuals wanting to expand studies at home.) It's free at Amazon ---> Here currently.
