WHY IS BH365 RELEVANT?


For decades, the intentional omission and misrepresentation of Black history in America’s public schools have robbed students of an opportunity to learn about the rich past and ancestry of African Americans. As taught in America’s schools, American history is a whitewashed version of this nation’s history with minimal acknowledgment of the countless contributions people of color have made to the development of this country and the promulgation of an identity steeped in slavery. Historical accounts of Black people have been framed from the context of slavery and civil rights while abandoning the rich legacy of African civilizations from which the enslaved were stolen and brought to American shores. BH365 challenges that approach presenting Black history from its place and time of origin – ancient Africa and celebrating the accomplishment of Black people in America. Many school districts around the country are now recognizing the need to include Black history. Several have even passed resolutions mandating the history of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) be included as an integral part of their American history courses. In some instances, students have successfully advocated for these policy changes. Research demonstrates the academic success of Black students increases when they are educated in an environment that promotes and provides culturally relevant teaching and learning opportunities that promote their identities and elevate their awareness about their culture, heritage, and history. The lack of historical content has been a significant influencer of adverse outcomes for black students and communities including lack of self-awareness, lack of self-esteem, lack of intrinsic motivation, decreased academic achievement, truancy, and criminal activity.

REVIEWS

From BH365's Advisory Board

The Black History 365 textbook is the greatest thing that has happened since sliced bread. I hope that all of you are able to acquire this book, even if it's just for your own families and personal education. From before slavery to everything that's happening today, it encompasses so much. I am very proud to be involved to try and educate the world.
- Mark Henry, WWE Superstar
The exemplary level of work and commitment exhibited to de-velop Black History 365 should be commended. The need for a project like this cannot be overstated nor ignored. Please support this endeavor and allow it to be an instructional tool for use in the preparation of guiding your students toward greatness!
- Cathy Hughes, Founder and Chairwoman. Urban One, Inc
Black History 365 is the comprehensive, holistic, text and image K-12 curriculum we have so intensely desired that fills a tremendous void in today's educational en-richment landscape.
