Oftentimes, students only learn about Black history in February. For the rest of the year, Black people are missing in textbooks and lesson plans. With ongoing attacks against African American studies in schools, this campaign aims to show why teaching Black history to students is vital to their understanding of the world.
Help us by sharing your experience learning about Black history in school. Post a visual or written piece describing your experience learning about Black history. We encourage you all to utilize your networks and post your stories on social media, tagging us (@Stand4Children on Twitter) and using the hashtag #BlackHistoryYearRound. If you are not comfortable sharing on your personal platforms, content can also be uploaded below and we will post them to our national social channels. Share your story to help us amplify the importance of #BlackHistoryYearRound!
