Celebrating Black History Month at MBCS

In eighth grade, their history block has been focusing on biographies of change makers in modern US history (Civil War to Civil Rights).

The students main lesson book content has been a series of pencil portraits, quotations, and short biographical narratives. The students are also doing oral presentations in which they choose and present the life of an important figure in the struggle for justice and equality in the United States. Many of the figures they could choose from are black Americans but also Latino, Asian American, Indigenous and/or LGBTQ+. The five stories told by eighth grade teacher, Mr. Joseph, were of MLK, Harriet Tubman, John Brown (the fascinating and controversial white abolitionist) Frederick Douglass, and Billie Holiday. We have included some beautiful student drawings above.
