SAY THEIR NAMES – Black History

Lost Lives But Never Forgotten

Black Lives Matter

We are halfway through Black History Month. The time is going by so fast. I have seen so much appreciation for black historical figures and it is amazing that our students know their history. Even if they do not know their history, it’s amazing that they are learning it. However, it is just as important that we honor the black historical figures who unfortunately lost their lives because of our corrupt justice system in America. In honor of these individuals we have lost, I would like to name 28 of their names for each day of Black History Month.
