Black History Month Project was meant to challenge the students to get to the core of this delicate issue. They were asked to do their own research so that at the end they could express their personal opinion.
The outcome consisted in the fact that the students got a better understanding of the significance of this month. However, their views diverged: some expressed their support for this remembrance month, while the others considered it to be irrelevant nowadays.
The project was done in black and white which was supposed to represent the present-day harmonious coexistence of the Black and White races.
At the end, the students were asked to "have their say" and express their opinion whether there is still the need to have such a month.
I enjoyed working on this project as it enabled me to see how students perceive the Black History Month. Besides, it appears as a way of combining creativity with specific information.
