Looking for a different activity for your children this Black History Month? I recently wrote a lesson for WooJr, an amazing resource for educators and parents alike, that takes a look at a very different group of women in history. Titled “10 Black Women Pioneers to Know for Black History Month” this lesson provides an introduction to bell hooks, Nikki Giovanni, Nina Simone, Tarana Burke, Ella Baker, Alicia Farza, Opal Tometi, Patrisse Khan-Cullors, Henrietta Lacks, and Dr. Shirley Ann Jackson.
