Teaching Resources for Black History Month

February is Black History Month. Visit the AFT Web site on Black History Month at http://www.aft.org/yourwork/tools4teachers/bhm/ for multi-media tools you can use in the classroom to educate students about the history of African-Americans in the United States. This Web site highlights key historical events, influential figures, and the continuing contributions of African-Americans to our nation and the world. It features a special focus on the landmark Brown v. Board of Education case that struck down the “separate but equal” rationale for racial segregation in public schools in 1954.
