Black History is American History: Resources to Start the Conversation
We find ourselves in a moment where the dialogue about racism, both systemic and interpersonal, is happening across the nation. As we prepare for the coming school year, many educators are looking for ways to address these conversations about race in their classrooms and to equip their students with an understanding of how we have arrived at our present moment.
Learning about Black History helps us understand how we got where we are as a nation, both by seeing the successes and the struggles of the Black experience. This is one of the guiding principles behind the digital resource, 306: African American History. We have also seen that teaching Black History to all students can create mindsets and behaviors to help them be an active part of creating a better tomorrow. Actively teaching students about systemic racism and how to combat it will be a crucial component in nurturing the culturally dexterous, conscientious citizens of tomorrow.
Join EVERFI’s Senior VP of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Jesse Bridges, Resource Implementation Specialist Caitlin Gayles, and educators from the field in a discussion about how to establish a strong foundation of Black History in every middle and high school classroom. You will learn strategies to create opportunities for deeper classroom conversations surrounding race and equity and receive access to free digital and offline resources that can be used in any classroom setting.
Attendees will receive:
- 1 hour PD certificate for technology integration
- Access to the free digital lessons from 306: African American History and the additional offline resources available for all educators
- An extension guide with additional resources for learning about anti-racism
