Honoring and celebrating Black History Month in the classroom can take many forms, from reading African-American literature to listening to jazz to learning about and even eating soul food. The options are endless for educators, but for those looking for a little inspiration, we’re highlighting quotes from 10 Black Americans that speak to the strength of the human spirit.
Read the words these writers, musicians, trailblazers, and more had to say that inspire us at Where Learning Clicks, and we hope will inspire you, too, as you and your students spend time celebrating Black History Month.
