    Black History Month                                            

    Happy Friday Skyline!  Here is your Black History knowledge drop for today.  Born from The Civil Rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s, the Black Student Union at San Francisco State University in 1966 was the first at any school anywhere.  Students Jimmy Garrett and Jerry Varnado cooked up the concept; a college advocacy group that would work toward civil rights everywhere. 

     

    One of the most important aspects of BSU was outreach into high schools and college prep programs. Get Black people an EDUCATION!

     

    BSU played a key role in the lives of tens of thousands of Black kids in the U.S. during the late 1960s and 70s. BSUs increased school and college admissions, influenced curriculum changes across the country, and organized to protest discriminatory policies at various school institutions. Community is power!

     

    Did you know that Skyline’s Black Student Union is 10 years old this year?  Skyline’s BSU was started during the 2012 - 2013 school year by Kay Wade.  She is a long-time member of the Ann Arbor community and worked as an AAPS social studies teacher for more than 30 years. She worked at Huron High School before coming to Skyline.  In addition to BSU, Kay Wade also started the African-American Humanities Senior AC course.

    Black History Month                                

    Today we start our celebration of Black History Month 2023.

    The story of Black History Month begins in 1915, half a century after the Thirteenth Amendment abolished slavery in the United States.

    That September, the Harvard-trained historian Carter G. Woodson and the prominent minister Jesse E. Moorland founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History, an organization dedicated to researching and promoting achievements by Black Americans and other peoples of African descent.

    The group sponsored a national Negro History week in 1926, choosing the second week of February to coincide with the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. 

    In the decades that followed, mayors of cities across the country began issuing yearly proclamations recognizing "Negro History Week."  By the late 1960s, thanks in part to the civil rights movement and a growing awareness of Black identity, "Negro History Week" had evolved into Black History Month on many college campuses.

    President Gerald Ford officially recognized Black History Month in 1976, calling upon the public to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of Black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.”  Today, Black History Month is a time to honor the contributions and legacy of African Americans across U.S. history and society.
