It’s officially the greatest time of the year! Carter G. Woodson once said, “knowing the past opens the door to the future,” and what better way to kick start Black History Month than to gift the little ones in your life with the knowledge of the history of those who paved the way for them!
Now, more than ever, we can’t rely on the school systems to teach our children the deep, rich history of Black people.
One would think that because our culture keeps the world spinning, we’d know everything there is to know about who we are and what we’ve accomplished. However, that is not the case; therefore, we must do it ourselves.
Check out these resources for BAUCE moms looking to not only take control of the narrative when it comes to instilling the history of who we are into their children but those who also understand that oftentimes, they are their children’s first teacher.
Celebrate Black History Month and teach your children the BAUCE way by tapping into these resources.
