BLACK HISTORY MONTH
Black History Month was created in 1926 as a month-long celebration to reflect on the history, teachings and achievements of African Americans. The acknowledgement of Black History Month is supported by LAUSD Board Rule 1102. The Office of Human Relations, Diversity & Equity has developed a plethora of resources to support the inclusion of Black History into the curriculum year round. Please check out our Advisory Lessons and Standing With Black Students, Staff and Families pages for more resources. Furthermore, Common Sense Media has curated a list of Books about Extraordinary Black Women in American History. Additionally, check out these 38 Ways to Intentionally Celebrate Black History Month.
