“Those who have no record of what their forebears have accomplished lose the inspiration which comes from the teaching of biography and history.”
– Dr. Carter G. Woodson
Dr. Woodson founded Black History Month to help African Americans piece together a history which continues to be broken apart by white supremacist culture. He hoped to ignite a sense of power and need for justice in Black people across the nation. Every February, the country furthers his work by recognizing the numerous achievements and contributions of Black leaders and activists. As we approach March, it is important to remember that this work must be continued all year long. As Dr. Woodson conveyed, in order to uplift Black voices of the present, we must spotlight Black voices of the past.
We hope that the resources below provide students and educators with the support needed to empower Black voices in our school communities year-round.
