STUDENT LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Counter Storytelling
  • Untold Stories
  • Black Business Titans

OVERVIEW

306: Continuing the Story extends the lessons of the original 306: African American History course, teaching students about events in U.S. history from both before and after the Civil Rights Era that have shaped the experience of many Black people in the United States. This African American History curriculum celebrates exceptional achievements made by Black leaders, trailblazers, and communities, despite an undeniable context of racism, trauma, and dehumanization. Students will draw connections from past and present events to recognize and empathize with the ongoing challenges Black people continue to face in the United States.

EVERFI offers two digital programs, 306: African American History and 306: Continuing the Story, that bring to life a number of the influential leaders and events whose impact changed the fabric of American life. These courses can be used alone or paired for a more comprehensive student experience.
