February is African American History Month. During this month, and throughout the year, we encourage our education community to honor and celebrate the achievements of African Americans. We want to recognize the countless ways in which African Americans have contributed to American culture and how they have led the way in advocating for civil rights, inclusion and racial equity.

Below you will find a list of resources, lesson plans and recommended readings for use throughout the month and beyond.
