Tell the Truth… about the History of the United States and its Black People: Weeks 1 through 4. Lessons and discussions of Black history should not be limited to one month. Black history is American History.

However, when students learn Black history, it is a rehashing of the familiar. Dr. Martin Luther King, Harriet Tubman and the various “Black Firsts” are important aspects of American history that deserve our attention and reverence. Yet there is so much more to learn… so much more knowledge to discover; if we simply tell the truth about American history and the role of Black people in that history. This document is a compilation of articles designed to do just that: tell the truth. Broken into 5 parts, this document will explore lessons of history rarely told in the American classroom. Along with the Bloom’s Taxonomy of Higher Order Thinking Rubric, teachers can use this text to engage students for Black History Month in a way that presents new information while facilitating engaging conversations. This text is for students of all ages: Teachers please adapt lessons for your age group.
