Uplifting and Celebrating the Black Community
Join us February 1st - 28th for a Black History Month endeavor filled with meaningful curriculum and virtual activities. This student-led event is aimed towards igniting connection, empathy, and listening. Through our guided curriculum, we'll be able to create an empowering environment of listening. We invite you to be part of this courageous conversation. In this virtual learning experience we will prompt one another to reflect on our stories and identities. In doing so, we will create and empowering environment of listening for Black stories and history. Topics include: identity, representation, culture, intersectionality, and more!
Information and Logistics
Throughout the four weeks of Black History Month, Cuesta College and Central Coast New Tech HIgh will provide guided slide decks of curriculum for neighboring schools and communities to utilize and interact with to learn.
