Book covers by Black authors have been recreated by a class of 6th grade students from Milwaukee to celebrate Black History Month.
Thanks to educator Terrance Sims, the class were able to accurately recreate some of the most iconic book covers and pay homage to Black voices. Sims ensures each Black History Month is marked by creating a project meant to highlight the talent, strength, and importance of Black leaders, artists, and culture.
This year’s project was inspired by the class’s book club who came up with the idea, and Sims gave it the title ‘Representation is Key’. The recreations (below) are really well done, and the pride the kids feel in themselves and the Black icons, is clear.
