Class Experience

Students will learn about Rosa Parks, and increase their understanding about racism, anti-racism, and non-violent social activism.  They will also explore ways they can use kindness and their voices to stand up to racism.
I love learning about history and its effects on the world.  I have a B.A. from Columbia University in History. I also have over 10 years of experience teaching African American History to students in Kindergarten to 8th grade. I would love to have the opportunity to share my love of history with your child.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.

Dear Parents, 

Please be aware that this class will cover the sensitive topic of racism against others based on skin color. This class will not focus on the origin of racism in America, but we will review how Jim Crow Laws impacted Rosa Parks before the Montgomery Bus Boycott. We will talk about his involvement in the Civil Rights Movement, and his lifelong dedication to achieving equality through non-violent protests. Students will also review the definitions of race, racism, segregation, anti-racism, and non-violent social activism. Students will be encouraged to participate and share their opinions. I will guide the conversation. The ultimate goal is to make children aware that all people should be treated fairly, and there are many ways to fight for justice and anti-racism.
