Homeschool Resources for Black History Month

black history month

LHSHS is thrilled to be able to share these free home school resources for Black History Month. We love the quote, ” Black history is American History.”  Though the history resources we present here should be incorporated into social studies learning throughout the year, this month is a great opportunity to delve deeper into the facts and bring connections from the past to the present. Each year The Association for the Study of African American Life and History selects a theme for Black History Month. This theme provides a great place to begin your study.
