How It Works

This is not your average history class...

In a lecture-style setting, learn about the history and origins of Black History Month, from pioneers and first celebrations to how we can continue to celebrate. Through a collection of slides, participants will discover the:

  • History of African people before Transatlantic enslavement
  • History of Dr. Carter G. Woodson and the origins of Negro History Week
  • Significance of February and why it was chosen for the celebration
  • First celebration of Black History Month by students at Kent State University
  • Continued need for awareness and education about Black history

This class includes Q&A opportunities, giving participants the chance to ask more about Black History Month. Our instructor will also provide educational resources and short, interactive activities to test your knowledge!

Our facilitator was engaging and well prepared. The training presentation was polished and professional. The pricing came in below budget, allowing us to book multiple sessions. Overall, I would highly recommend.

Our host was committed to helping us learn, and the pop quizzes helped to solidify the details. He's engaging, had a great cadence with the content, and the mix of multimedia made this a really enjoyable and informative presentation.
