The history of people of the African Diaspora is important because it serves as the foundation for understanding social, economic, and political life in America and around the world. The Black History Video Challenge provides an interactive and engaging format for middle school students to share their knowledge about the accomplishments of Black people.
This challenge is open to all Shepard students. Everyone has something to gain by deepening their knowledge of Black history. This is because Black history is both heritage knowledge for Black people, as well as cultural knowledge for people of other ethnic backgrounds. Teaching Black history helps to combat damaging views and stereotypes of Black people while developing positive cultural identities. Black history is everyone’s history.
