Black History Month: Follow us on social media for school snapshots

Lego mural of Martin Luther King, Jr. created by Mills Middle School students During Black History Month, we’ll highlight examples of teachers and school communities working to expand understanding of African American experiences, voices, and contributions - histories that deserve celebration far beyond four weeks in February. 

(Pictured, left: Science, technology, engineering, and math students in Stephanie Bird’s class at Mills Middle School created this Martin Luther King, Jr. mural out of Legos last month.) 

Periodically during the month of February, we’ll post snapshots to our social media pages of creative teaching and learning that engages students around the impacts of African Americans throughout U.S. history. 

Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to stay connected to these stories.
