A dinner menu to celebrate Women’s History Month, brought to you by Black women food bloggers.
Our Family Dinner Book Club theme for the year is Celebrations! This month we’re celebrating Women’s History Month with Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History by Vashti Harrison. To accompany this themed dinner menu, Growing Book by Book has a reading list of additional books as well as talking points to get the conversation started. Sunny Day Family shares a selection of crafts to help celebrate.
February is Black History Month, followed in March by Women’s History Month. So we’re at the perfect intersection to bring our focus to Black women throughout history. Our lead book this month is a great jumping off point. Vashti Harrison has taken beautifully represented the women in this book and shares snippets of their history.
The menu below is a collection of recipes found around the web by Black women food bloggers. Some I have been following for a few years, and some that are new to me. Please follow these links and spend some time perusing their sites to find some new family favorite recipes.
I set up this menu to be like a toast bar. Slices of toast and crackers are set out alongside various toppings to make your own open-faced toasted sandwiches. I added some fresh fruit to the platter to lighten up the meal.
