Black History Month extends far beyond February to bring attention to the importance of Black history as part of American history. At McHenry Community High School, social science instructors and students in the BLACK Student Union annually create lessons and displays to spotlight the contributions of Black Americans during Black History Month and throughout the year.
Please see some of the information shared at school and beyond that highlight the many contributions of Black Americans on society today. To the left are resources for our community on the origins of Black History Month and where to find more information.
