The 45 Days of Black History

45 Days

The observance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday is often seen as the kick-off for Black History Month. This webinar will prepare educators to use the approximately 45 days between the King holiday and the end of February to engage all students in recognizing and understanding how Black Americans have moved United States and world history forward. Join Learning for Justice as we share practices and strategies for celebrating the contributions of African Americans, whether they are household names or unsung heroes. Reverend Frederick D. Reese, famed educator and civil rights activist, will join us to share his firsthand experience from the front lines of the civil right movement.​
