Join the 60,000+ teachers who used EVERFI's award-winning lessons this past school year!

Students expressed that these lessons helped them see not just the history as something in the past, it made it relevant, it made them realize that these happened not in the far past as they had envisioned but in the more recent past. This to me spoke to the fact that we need to help students see what the past was and work to do better and be better. Students spoke of race and the differences in how races are treated as something that needs to be recognized and addressed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Did you know that the number 306 has significance in Black history? When Dr. Martin Luther King stayed at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, the site of his assassination in 1968, he preferred to stay in room 306. To support creative and intellectual expression during the Harlem Renaissance, artist Charles Alston founded “Group 306.” And when the Supreme Court issued its decision in the Dred Scott v. Sanford Case, it was on March 6, 1857. This common thread and countless key moments in Black History are often left out of textbooks.
