The program addresses the Black History Month theme “Black Resistance”
Efforts to repress the teaching of Black history in the United States have a long history. Ironically as we celebrate Black History Month we find ourselves engaged in a highly charged public debate around this very issue. We invite you to join us and a panel of scholars, teachers, parents and activist to engage in a conversation on the issues, proposals, opportunities and strategies that are part of today’s struggle on the national, state and local levels.

Organizations are asked to share information on their programs and projects that can contribute to this year long focus on the topic of Black Resistance in its many forms
