Recognizing Black History Month
Saturday, January 25th we convened as a community to recognize and honor the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by participating in a day of service. February 1st marks the beginning of Black History Month. Throughout history, there have been black #AgentsofChange advocating and working to secure equal rights and fair treatment of African Americans and those whose voices are not heard. Throughout this month we often see the same Changemakers featured in history books and classrooms- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, and Malcolm X among others.
Take some time to research a Black leader and in your own words, post a brief summary (one paragraph) about
- who they are
- what they did
- their impact
Pay attention to the posts of those before you and try not to post about duplicate leaders. If you do post about the same person as one of your peers, comment on their post instead of adding your own, and make sure you are adding new information.
