Ask me about: Freedom Schools commemorative buttons. Why Freedom Schools? Teaching for Change advocates for the type of learning and pedagogy used in Freedom Schools. Why the buttons? Because Black History is U.S. History and should not be reduced to the few names and events that are recycled in classrooms and the media every year during Black History Month.
Make a donation to Teaching for Change in the month of February and receive this one-of-a-kind button commemorating Freedom Schools and the importance of teaching Black History all year long.
Your gift* will help us give teachers and parents the tools to teach Black History and multicultural education every month of the year---- not just in February.
|"We are not here to teach you. We are here to help you learn |
and to learn together. We are going to talk about a lot of things: about Negro people and white people, about rich people and
poor people.... We'll also ask some questions and try to find some answers. The first thing is to look around, right here, and see
how we live in Mississippi."
----From Introduction to Unit I of the Citizenship Curriculum,
Mississippi Freedom School Curriculum (1964).
