For Black History Month, French Road Elementary School shared some videos with students. They feature black teachers, staff members, students, parents, and community members answering the questions: Why is Black History Month important to you? and What does being black mean to you? Teachers were able to use the videos for classroom conversations.
The shorter videos with an introduction from Principal Dr. Rioux are available here:
The full video with the complete interview responses is available here:
Thank you to the participants for sharing their perspectives. Also, thank you to Eric Gruner for creating the video and Julie Kopp for arranging the interviews. There will be a new video each week this month.
