Black History Month 2018 has kicked off with a bang at Jefferson Academy in Washington D.C. - SW. The link below will re-direct you to a list of people and their interesting accomplishments across the African Diaspora. We omitted Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Harriet Tubman, Malcolm X etc. because they are often 'over researched,' during this month. We wanted our students to explore and learn about people that they have never read about.
Also included in the link is a kick off to our 8th grade community meeting where the staff discussed all of the events that would be taking place at the school. All resources shared are in public folders/social media pages.
