Black History Month

As we enter the month of February, we join in celebrating Black History Month—an opportunity to honor the rich heritage, contributions, triumphs and struggles of African Americans throughout history. This month and year-round, teachers and students recognize and celebrate the significant contributions and achievements of Black individuals throughout history.  

This year, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History & Culture is “highlighting the ‘art of resistance’ and the artists who used their crafts to uplift the race, speak truth to power and inspire a nation.”  And check out this curated collection of films, series, and streaming by PBS celebrating Black History Month, spotlighting Black history, music, art, and experiences.    

Incorporating Black history into the classroom curriculum fosters a more inclusive and diverse learning environment, helps students gain a fuller understanding of the nation’s rich cultural mosaic and promotes a sense of unity among students.
