Clark Atlanta Grad Launches Educational Website, Pens HBCU Children’s Book

A graduate of a historically Black institution in Georgia has created a website that offers courses teachers can use to make education more interesting to young Black students.

Yvette Manns, who majored in early childhood education at Clark Atlanta University, said that she realized that many of the reading materials were not produced for the students she was teaching in the inner city. Subsequently, she decided to produce courses offering perspectives for teachers that would be more relevant to young Black students.

Her website, The Lit Teacher, also has a blog discussing issues of importance to teachers in urban schools.

Manns’ latest work, a book titled “HBCU Proud,” tells the story of a Black youngster named Q who tours Legacy University, a historically Black institution, with his aunt. During his visit, Q learns about the history of historically Black colleges and universities, or HBCUs, and their importance in African American history.
