Black History Themes and Resources

"Black History should be an integral part of U.S. History year-round. The accurate and in-depth teaching of Black History remains an elusive dream. Regardless, we should continue to call attention to the African-American activism and achievements during the month of February to remind us to reimagine the possibilities that can lie ahead."

- Michele Hancock, Vice President of College Culture for Inclusion, Professor of Practice in Education - Carthage College
