Black History Month 2016

People from other countries have always come to live in America. But unlike other people who came here because they wanted to, the first black Americans were brought here against their will, as slaves. Once they arrived here they were treated as property and had no legal rights. Since that time African-Americans have continued to struggle for freedom and equality.

This set of lessons takes us back in time to learn about black history. As we travel back in time to learn about black history we will take a look inside each time period we visit. Join us on this journey.

We also offer a set of lessons from the Library of Congress that use Primary Source to teach about Black History.
