Black History Month + Women’s History Month

Black History Month + Women’s History Month

If you have visited the DWWC Facebook Page or Member’s Group, you may have discovered that there was an informal challenge raised to celebrate Black Women for both months. Members have been posting often overlooked accomplishments of black women. Check out the women that have been highlighted. Moving from February into March, black women will continue to be highlighted during Women’s History Month.

The programs at our monthly meetings also follow this theme. There is still time to register for the February 25 meeting, Lifted Out of the Shadows: Black Women & Girls’ Contributions to Social Change, featuring Dr. Valerie Johnson, Dean of Arts, Sciences & Humanities at Shaw University.

The program for next month will follow the theme of Women’s History Month. The North Carolina Museum of History includes North Carolina Women’s History Time Line, a component of a curricular unit on North Carolina Women. For teachers and others supporting online learning during the COVID-19 Pandemic, this unit may be useful. Be sure to check out the section on Teaching with Primary Sources. With many resources accessible online, using primary sources is an essential skill and enables students to compare factual information with misinformation and disinformation.
