To celebrate and honor Black History Month, we’ve assembled a set of lessons, resources, and learning materials from education-focused organizations for students of all ages.
As we pay tribute to the vast contributions African Americans have made to our country, we also recognize how far we still have to go to end systemic racism and violence. In January, students across the country watched the first Black and South Asian woman get sworn in as Vice President. They also witnessed a violent attack at the U.S. Capitol Building, where white supremacist organizations, symbols, and messages were prominent.
We know that educators are playing a key role in helping students to understand how we got to this point—making space for them to process what is happening and empowering our young people to create a better future. We hope these resources can help support classroom conversations this month and throughout the year.
