Black history belongs outside of the month of February. Black voices, experiences, histories, and futures deserve to be a part of the every day classroom.

 

However, few teachers explored Black history in their own schooling beyond MLK and the civil rights movement.

 

Here are a few of our favourite resources to help you get started on your Black history teaching and learning journey.
