MLK Jr. and Black History Month

  • In celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Black History Month in February, below are instructional resources and lessons that may be helpful in the classroom. There is no expectation that teachers use these resources in particular. Selection of lessons and resources is a professional decision. The below resources aim to address the political, social and economic realities of Black life in America, the Civil Rights struggles – and equally, if not more, important – the achievements and cultural contributions of Black Americans that enable our society to transcend the bounds of racism.
