This school year has challenged us in many ways. One of the challenges that should stay with us is how we acknowledge and talk about race in our Catholic schools, classrooms and ministries. It is widely recognized that understanding black history and culture should not be relegated to a single month, but interwoven with equity into the way we learn and teach about history, government, culture and faith in our Catholic schools. The 2021 theme for Black History Month is “Black Family: Representation, Identity and Diversity”. The list of resources below is offered for educators to thoughtfully consider how they can recognize Black History Month, but also examine how diversity and identity can be a lasting theme in your classroom for 2021 and beyond.
