Black History Education

Multicultural Black History Activities
SelmaOn February 14th, students gathered to watch the educational film, Selma.  This film pointedly showed students the struggles of African American individuals through the mid 1960s.  It chronicled Martin Luther King, Jr. as he led the fight for equality regardless of the color of skin.  It showed the terrible beatings, threats and mockery that many people endured.  This was a strong reminder to everyone that prejudice is not acceptable and each person should have the same rights, freedoms and privileges.  

During the film, students had specific questions to answer.  The following day, students assembled in strategically planned groups so that the educational strategy Jigsaw could take place.  Each student in the group shared information with the other members because each student had answered different questions with regard to the film.  This was wonderful reinforcement and a great opportunity for further discussion within the classroom.

The Cabell County Alternative School always wants to acknowledge Black History Month and appreciate people of all races and diverse cultures.
