Black Lives Matter at School and Black History Month
Tue, Feb 2 8:31am

To Children's School Families:

 

In February we celebrate Black History Month to honor the achievements, events and the important role Black Americans have played throughout history and the present. To encourage community participation as a way to share our voices, we want to pass on these resources not just to celebrate Black History Month, but to support the development of critically conscious citizens all year long. While Black History Month is celebrated in February, the process of reflecting on equity, implicit bias, and justice is ongoing. On the calendar of events you will find ways to participate in the week of action as well as ways to participate all year long. In school students will engage in lessons and celebrations connected to the curricula. 

 

Black Lives Matter at School is a national coalition organizing for racial justice in education.  We encourage all educators, students, parents, unions, and community organizations to join our annual week of action during the first week of February each year. 

 

Greetings everyone!

We are excited to share our Week of Action calendar of events!  Please be sure to read the daily prompts and encourage your students and colleagues and community members to respond to them on social media and tag @BLM_edu_ny and @BLMatSchool, #BlackLivesMatterAtSchool.  

Go ahead and register as soon as you can for our amazing virtual events if you haven't already and you will receive zoom links before the event.
