Black History Month is an important opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the genius and joy of Black historical figures - both living and from the past - who shape our world. The OER Commons Team is looking to connect with educators interested in sharing lesson or unit plans that feature Black historical figures from across different content areas, such as Henrietta Lacks (science), Francis Ellen Watkins Harper (poetry), and Lorenzo Dow Turner (linguistics). To help both students and educators learn more about Black historical figures, OER Commons is curating resources that include both student-facing materials and teacher-facing supports.
