Teaching through Black History: An overview of Black Historical Consciousness
Keywords:Black history education, History, Black students, Race, Education, Social Studies Education
History is one of the most undesirable subjects for Black students. The reason is not that Black students are apathetic towards the past; it is the lack of and/or coverage of Black history in U.S. and World history courses. Black students clammer to learn Black history (Noldon, 2007; Thornhill, 2016; Woodson, 2015). While evidence suggests that Black history increases Black student engagement and is psychologically beneficial (Boutte & Strickland, 2008; Chapman-Hilliard & Adams, 2016), these students are left disappointed with teachers who are incapable of teaching the subject. This paper responds to those concerns by outling a Black history framework that enhances the learning and teaching of Black history education.
