I shared this on my Facebook page, but it’s so dope I had to share it with you all! I’m so proud of my good sis Jazmyn Pratt (who is from Tacoma btw) for putting this together. If you haven’t run across the video, BLK WINS is a new online series that teaches kids ALL about Black History. At the end of the day, it’s slim pickings for students when it comes to learning about more than slavery and MLK during Black History Month. Jazmyn and her team are working to change that. Get the series details below:
What did you learn during Black History Month when you were in school?
SLAVERY. CIVIL RIGHTS. THE CIVIL WAR.
What kind of image does that give young black boys and girls about their history? What about their classmates?
There’s so much more than that, and our youth have the right to know their history, which is why we’ve created BLK WINS.
BLK WINS teaches black TRIUMPHS instead of TRAGEDIES in a way that’s accessible and relevant to young people!

At the end of the day, kids need to know their history and adults can always use a refresher. Check out the preview and share it with anyone that loves history ❤️
