Black History Month Series: A Challenge!SF Public School Mom

Black History Month Series: A Challenge!SF Public School Mom:

Black History Month (BHM) Series #1: A Challenge!


In honor of Black History Month, I’m reposting this previous blog. A few years ago, (2015 to be exact!) I challenged myself to write 28 posts highlighting African-American History. I made a dent in my original goal, but one year later I still had a way to go. This year I finally reached my goal!!! Check out my original post which appeared on February 2, 2015 below, and please, if you have any suggestions, post them in the comments below!

It’s Black History Month!!! Yay!

This hilarious and to the point SNL skit inspired me to write 28 posts highlighting African-American culture and heritage (roughly one for each day of the month)… Watch the video (below) and then read about why it inspired me to write this series. (You can also view the video directly on YouTube.)


28 Reasons… (reasons 2-28 are all the same)

I mentioned in a previous post that I became an educator because it took me until college to really appreciate school, due to the fact that anything “academic” lacked relevance to what I felt was important. Social studies, for example, was a bore because my teachers focused only on memorization of dates and events. More important, our textbooks looked flat in comparison to the rich cultural tapestry that was my neighborhood.
