Black History Resources for All Ages

EDITOR’S NOTE: This piece was first printed on Dominique Gilliard’s privateweblog.

Beneath is record I’ve compiled of Black Historical past movie and literature suggestions for adults, highschool, center college, and elementary college studentsthat will take greater than a month to interact. I’ve additionally included a Black Historical past soundtrack which lyrically roots this studying in lament, resilience, resistance, pleasure, and celebration, as a result of our historical past (and current) is a prophetic combination of those components. I hope you interact this useful resource, study from it, share it with others, and make a dedication to be the change you wish to see on the planet. Blessings!
