Honoring Black History

In honor of Black History Month this year, the School has provided some opportunities for students and adults to explore the history and experiences of African-Americans more deeply.
Members of the adult community are encouraged to take on the School’s Anti-racism Challenge. The Challenge, created by the School’s Inclusivity Leadership Team (ILT), includes a host of carefully curated print, audio, and video resources to help guide participants through four weekly themes including: Historical Foundations of Race, Racism and Systems of Oppression, Racial Identity and Whiteness, and Anti-racism and Action. The intention of the month long Challenge is to raise awareness of racial injustice, to encourage participants to reflect personally upon the material, and to promote actionable steps towards creating a more equitable and just society. 

The materials provided on the Challenge website are intended for a more mature audience, so the ILT has also created a resource for family members of all ages to use as well this month. The Black History Month Calendar provides daily topics to learn more about impactful people, events, movements, etc. in African-American history. The Calendar Challenge provides opportunities for parents and children to inquire and reflect together on these important people and moments in the history of the United States. Families are encouraged to explore what they know, what they wonder about, and what they can do to make an impact in relation to each of the daily topics. The topics provided are not intended to serve as a comprehensive list, but rather a place to start. The ILT hopes that both challenges will inspire community members to continue to learn and explore.
