Black History Month is off to a great start at KIPP Charlotte and especially within the Pride of 2022! This month, our curriculum will focus on critical Black thinkers, artists and figures, pushing students to engage in meaningful conversations about race and culture.
School-wide, students will have the opportunity to focus on an individual who has made a profound impact in each of their respective core academic subject areas. This week, we're exploring Benjamin Banneker (Math), Dr. Charles Drew (Science), Langston Hughes (Reading) and David Walker (Social Studies).
In addition to this, students will have the opportunity to attend a Film Screening and fieldtrips to local cultural museums, as well as participate in our Black History Month Quiz Bowl at the end of the month. We're hoping to provide a powerful experience for all students that will expose them to individuals, events, ideas and concepts that have shaped not only their individual realities, but the realities of our larger world.
Check back for more and look out for updates from our students in the upcoming weeks!
