Black History Month resources for teachers

This Black History Month collection highlights lessons, primary sources, articles and videos about the people, events and legislation that defined life for African Americans in the U.S. from the Civil War to the Civil Rights Movement to now. February is recognized as a a time to investigate more deeply the struggles and achievements of African Americans, but Black History is everyone's history and these materials can be integrated into your teaching throughout the year.  This collection is only a sample of the resources on this topic;  use "black history" or "civil rights" as search terms to find more.

Please note that the files in this collection cannot be downloaded from WeTeachNYC because they link out to an external site.
