Celebrating Black History Month: Black Heroes Don’t Always Have Claws

The excitement and energy that Black Panther has generated can be powerful when coupled with a Black History Month focus on African-American heroes. Students can discuss the qualities that make someone a hero or a good leader and learn about black Civil Rights leaders, scientists, government leaders, and artists that have made an impact.  While many schools have resources regarding important figures such as Martin Luther King Junior, Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, and Jackie Robinson, students should see that many others have contributed to our advancement as a society.
