Black History Monthly Series

Monday 8th August

A monthly class on the journey of Africans & African Americans through history. This class consists of 12 monthly lessons on Black History.

 

Many schools, including K-12 districts, private schools, community colleges and universities have taken steps to attack, remove and ban so-called “critical race theory.”

But what they are really opposed to is the teaching of Black History and the history of racism in America.

Some have targeted the “1619 Project” and other lessons and curricula that discuss slavery, Jim Crow, white supremacy and racial equality. Others have tried to block any lessons dealing with police violence against African Americans, such as the police murder of George Floyd in 2020.

The state of Arizona outright banned “ethnic studies.” They made it ILLEGAL to teach “Black history, Latinx history, Native American history, etc.”

Even before this backlash, most schools and universities have never done a good job teaching African & African American history, or the history of Black people throughout the diaspora.

Therefore, historian and educator Jamon Jordan of Black Scroll Network History & Tours has started a monthly virtual class on African & American History. The class consists of 12 monthly lessons that will take us from the African origin of humanity to the election of Barack Obama, and how all of this history is connected.

The first lecture is Monday, February 14th from 6-8pm. Every presentation after that is scheduled for the second Monday of the month from 6-8pm (Except the July and September lectures, which will take place on the 3rd Monday of those months).

Two days prior to the lecture, a Zoom link will be sent you via email. Please check the email you gave when you registered for the event.

If a lecture is cancelled due to unforeseen reasons, it will be rescheduled, and you will receive a notice via email. If you cannot make the RESCHEDULED lecture, you can request to receive a recorded lecture via email, or you can receive a refund.
