Honoring Black History Month

February is Black History Month, during which we celebrate achievements of Black and African-Americans in the United States and acknowledge their history of adversity. This year, Grier will pay tribute to Black Americans in a variety of ways including special classroom lessons and weekend activities.
Participants in Grier’s Beyond the Bubble initiative are planning ways for Grier to celebrate Black History month, which may include a school dance, a poetry slam, and a movie night. Bubble Talks, which began last year, are scheduled to resume in February as well and continue every two weeks. They have put together a nice resource celebrating Black women in history

Beyond the Bubble aims to encourage personal growth by taking Grier girls outside of their normal spheres, or bubbles. Bubble Talks are town-hall style meetings where everyone is invited to listen, learn, and discuss.  

The research database company ProQuest has made a collection of supporting primary sources in their Black Freedom Struggle in the United States collection available to everyone for free. Reading first-hand accounts is an excellent way for humanities courses and interested students to gain valuable insight into this time.

We are looking forward to these great ways to gain understanding and celebrate African-Americans and Black History.
