Today, Feb. 17, at 3 p.m. EST, join the PBS NewsHour and Independent Lens online for a live screening of the film 'More Than a Month' where students can watch and discuss the film and its ideas with filmmaker Shukree Tighman. http://ovee.itvs.org/screenings/hns44
Tighman proposes ending Black History Month because he argues African-American history should be celebrated year-round.
Here's a story with lesson plans about Tighman's film and the story of Black History Month: http://www.pbs.org/newshour/extra/features/us/jan-june12/blackhisto...
Let us know, too, if events like this are valuable for your teaching and how you use them in the classroom.
