Black History Month Activities

Several TeamMates chapters are honoring Black History Month in February. The message and activities below were sent out to mentors from our Omaha Public Schools Chapter.

February is Black History Month, a celebration of the lives and historic contributions of Black Americans. While we champion the great impact on American history and the successes had by Black adults, we must remember to celebrate our Black youth. Remember that we, as caring adults, have the opportunity to co-create solutions and spaces that best serve Black youth and recognize the impression they will leave on our country generation after generation. Black youth have spoken into existence a just world and fought against systemic racism and violence. And in the face of that, they have also learned, played, and lived. They have been mentors and mentees that have helped push our movement forward.
