We can teach young people the honest history of the United States in age-appropriate ways and help them understand commonalities across cultures to develop a strong sense of self and identity as they honor diversity. To support these conversations and learning experiences, we offer parents, caregivers and educators teaching strategies, talking points and activities.
Celebrate Black History Month by Teaching Honest History
Young people deserve to learn history that is accurate, comprehensive and inclusive. Our newest framework, Teaching the Civil Rights Movement, offers resources for teaching the Black movement for freedom and equality from Reconstruction through the Civil Rights Movement to the present.
