WA Charters’ Black History Resource Library

Feb 29, 2024 | WA Charters

At WA Charters, we believe in Cultural Humility. We commit to listening, leading with compassion and honesty, and celebrating all cultures in order to build trust and authentically support community restoration and empowerment.

February is Black History Month, which was created to focus attention on the contributions of African Americans to the United States. It honors all Black people from all periods of U.S. history.

Throughout the past month, WA Charters’ Organization Culture Team kept our staff engaged with articles that celebrate and support the learning of Black Communities in Washington, encouraging reflections and discussions. Here are some of the questions we spent time reflecting on:

  • What did we learn about Black History Month growing up, in school? What are we unlearning as adults?
  • What Black History exists in the communities we live in?
  • Who are the Black people from history that we are learning about today?

To extend our collective learning beyond February, we are sharing these resources with our broader community of schools, families, and partners! Check out the links below (resources also available in our Learning Library):
