Welcome! Black History 365 (BH 365) is an interactive U.S. history textbook that functions a bit like a timeline...telling stories from the beginning in Ancient Africa through the transatlantic Slave Trade, the Civil War, Reconstruction, Jim Crow, civil rights and right up into modern events and moments.
It is important to lead with the historical truth about the creativity and ingenuity of ancient Africa, finding people, events and things to celebrate with Black people and our history and not just relate everything back to slavery or civil rights.
The BH 365 curriculum documents unique narratives of Black people with lessons that come alive through more than 3,000 original documents and artifacts, including resources and curriculum for teachers and sections for families and small groups. We are letting all people know — Black, White, Hispanic and Asian students — that Black people were significant in the building of this country.
Many school Superintendents and educators have used words like, "ground-breaking", "historic" and "comprehensive" when describing our BH 365 curriculum.
The purpose of this website is to invite you to support Black History by participating in this educational, K-12 curriculum project, designed to positively impact the hearts and minds of students, families and educators across America. Donate Now.
Black History 365 has been enthusiastically supported many leaders, including the Founder of Radio/TV One, Cathy Hughes. During Black History Month (2019) we were honored to be interviewed about BH365 by her Radio One program hosts across America.
"It’s important to tell students the truth. The longer we don’t do that, the worse off I think we will be. And we have to find moments and things to celebrate with Black people and our history and not just relate everything back to slavery or civil rights. We talk about slavery trade and civil rights in the textbook, but the book is about so much more than that. We are really letting all students, families and educators know-- Black, White, Hispanic, and Asian--- that Black people were significant in the founding of this country."
