Why black history matters to me
Students talk about how black history changed them: “It has the power to inspire those of us who cannot aspire. We need to know that there’s more to us than the chains that hold our people down.”
- Pick one black person whom you think everyone should study in school. Create a one-page profile of their story, including an image and five reasons why you admire them or find them interesting.
- Imagine you are designing your own curriculum for English or History. Pick one topic you would want to study. What historical moments or literary texts would you need to include?
