During the month of February, Teaching for Change will promote the importance of teaching Black History all year with Ask me about: 1963 commemorative buttons.
The year 1963 was pivotal to the Civil Rights Movement. It is often recalled as the year of the "I Have a Dream" speech at the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, but much more transpired.
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.
